Toasted Almond Sofa Table with Stenciled Drawers
I’m not quite sure why, but when it came time to name this piece I thought of food. The first and only thing to come to mind were toasted almonds for this sofa table. It came to the shop in nice shape, very plain, nothing fancy or striking about it …. aside from those gorgeous curvy legs!

Personally, I am NOT a fan of these hardware pulls and wanted to replace them. So I actually searched and found new hardware before deciding on colors, design, finish or anything else for that matter. I guess you could say that I worked backward on this one. I narrowed it down and chose these very pretty new pulls with an antique copper almost bronze finish. They have a pretty vintage look to them. I didn’t want to get super modern hardware but definitely wanted to replace the originals. These are perfect!Next, I decided to keep things neutral and went with a creamy almond base and legs. I also added a surprise stencil design on the outer sides of the drawers in bronze to compliment the hardware and the velvet lining inside the drawers.

The Result – Toasted Almond Sofa Table
I adore the look of a dark stain top, I think it looks very classy so I sanded the top and applied a fresh stain. The stain is actually a mix of different shades of browns giving an appearance of toasted almonds! The stain actually brought out the amazing wood grain that was barely noticeable in its original condition. The rich coloring of the stained top with the creamy body of the sofa table make such a perfect pairing.
The hardest part was waiting for the new hardware to arrive. But once it came I was finally able to photo this beauty.
What a nice surprise when you open the drawers too!
