Ballard Designs Inspired Whitewashed Table

I have had my eye on Ballard Designs "Ceylon" outdoor collection for some time now.  With a price tag of $479 for just the table, it's never going to happen!

 This what the table looked like before....a yellowish blonde wood?
It was at least a lighter colored wood making it easier to get a nice whitewashed finish.
I sanded the whole thing down and did a light layer of watered down grey paint over the whole thing to help tone some of the "yellow" down before layering the white dry brush on.

This is my third whitewashed piece and I have tried a different technique each time!
It's just paint and most of the time if I didn't like what I was seeing I could just wipe it off.
Now for the pretty shots!


If you are in the Orlando area, she is for sale! $125
