Meesh from imeeshu.com found a Duncan Phyfe table on Craigslist for $30. She writes, “It was an interesting shape and I figured would be a good chance to practice some new finishing techniques. Particularly, I wanted to learn how to get as close as possible to the Restoration Hardware gray wood finish that is so in vogue right now.”
Her original inspiration for the finish was the Vintage French Round Leather Armchair which retails for $479 from Restoration Hardware.
