Showered with inspiration!

Having recently attended the Bridal Shower for my best friend I found inspiration for a recent console table in need of some rescuing! The table was originally boring and common place and needed a facelift, but with so many choices what was a girl to do?!  Strangely enough I found it in an unlikely place, my best friends wedding china, go figure!  The bride to be had the impeccable taste of choosing the pieces of her place setting in varying shades of gray.  The result was elegant, refine, but also unassuming.  They match the bride perfectly.  As soon as I saw the deep charcoal paired with lovely dove gray I had the itch to start painting ASAP! The once drab now FAB table came together quite nicely, a dash of patina blue added a bit of “je ne sais quoi!”  I hope you all love this piece as much as we do, here at the Front Porch.  (and a special “thank you” to the blushing bride to be for the inspiration! Love you Ms H!)
