Feminine Zinc Topped Table

 I LOVE this room...but it's not mine :)  I just "vanhooked" the table for a sweet friend of mine.  I love the red print on the curtain fabric with the dark gray on the walls and the crisp white bedding....this is her new guest room since her oldest son recently got married and moved out....
The before photos are upside down because I'm always excited about starting and I forget to take them until I've already started....
This table had sat in their entry way of their home and unfortunately a chandelier fell on it and broke off a piece of the top right in the middle of the table....
So I painted her with ASCP in Duck Egg and distressed it a little bit...
My husband topped it with a piece of zinc to disguise the "injury"...
Now she's a got a whole new look working...
Even though there was a "shape" to the edge of the table top the zinc still wrapped around it pretty easily and followed the edge really well....
I painted the hardwear and the edges of the drawers with ASCP in Old White....
She is now *girly* compared to how she looked before...
We did a whole post on topping a table with zinc HERE if you're interested in seeing how we do it. And there is another post on aging it HERE... 
A nice piece of furniture given a new phase of life!
