Gray is the “it” color in home decor trending now and at 540 Mercantile we have the makings for a perfect dining room ready for your home!
Every home decor magazine is showing beautiful rooms painted in gray…but if your home isn’t painted in the latest color trend, select this beautiful color for your furniture. Starting with this set of four Duncan Phyfe chairs covered in fun seats in graphite grey with black numbers. Each chair is finished in black wax to deepen the gray color.
The round table pedestal base was painted in Pure Earth Paint Onyx paint, lightly distressed to show the golden oak. Then the top was stained and sealed to bring out the beautiful oak color.
Fnally this beautiful vintage China Hutch was painted with Pure Earth Paint in Meteorite Gray then aged with black wax. Each piece in a bit different shade of gray to give your dining room a relaxed feel.
So as you make your plans for the holidays, invest in furnishing that will be fashionable but neutral lasting for years to come. Stop by 540 Mercantile today to see all our beautiful pieces to make your house a home. We are located at 221 E Louisiana Street, McKinney Texas.
I love Pinterest…I can sit for hours looking at the beautiful pictures and find more ideas than I could ever recreate in my home. Today this vintage sewing machine table caught my eye. Painted in white, this sweet small table with tray would fit beautifully as a bedside table. Or add a mirror in your foyer to create a perfect spot to check your lip-gloss before you head out the door.
Most of us just aren’t lucky enough to have a sewing machine base to make a table with sitting around. But wait! We at 540 Mercantile have two vintage sewing machine bases turned into tables just waiting to be discovered and used in your home.
The first one is this beautiful sewing machine base with a natural cast iron base and galvanized metal top. The top allows this table to be used inside or out. Place it between rocking chairs on your Pinterest inspired porch or place it in your child’s room as an unusual desk.
I love the green painted base on this table. It has a vintage enameled table top with all its rustic charm and character. The top is a bit wider so you could use it as a dining table for your breakfast nook or patio. Wouldn’t this be adorable as a sewing table in your craft room?

So often I see happy moments being photographed on our wonderfully picturesque McKinney, Texas streets. These great moments are captured by any number of our McKinney photographers. I usually smile and try to weave my way around the happy moments without being intrusive. I’m not the photographer…I’m a store keep…happy to see the joy around me. Like this moment captured by Aimee Louise Photography…
Our home town is filled with wonderful snap shot potential! Rustic signage to pose near, stone steps in the alley ways, metal fire escape steps….or our horses that make our Mounted Police a McKinney favorite….
SO…When….I get to take part of our McKinney moments captured, I am all but giddy! One beautiful evening this sweet couple comes in and spies a box sign…”Find the one who makes your heart smile!” and just like that I am taking their picture for their engagement picture….
