It actually came as a set with the mirror for only $10!
I ended up selling the mirror on Craig's List and put the table in my foyer.
I love this table, but always knew I would eventually paint it. I just didn't know what color.
I chose chalk paint in Old White and then heavily distressed it.
I then went over it with my minwax stain in Dark Walnut and wiped it off to show more of the detail, then waxed and buffed for a finished look.
I decided not to paint the top, and instead sanded it down and covered it in the Dark Walnut followed by two coats of poly.
I love how it looks now.
I purchased the key at the Clover Market this past weekend. Everything else I already had.
Since I was in the process of painting this piece, I decided to paint a table for Denise with the same technique.
Denise got this table at the local flea for $10.
It's from Bombay Co., but I think the previous owner sanded and stained, but did a shabby job.
They also added some extra embellishments to the sides, which showed up much better when it was painted and distressed.
Here it is all finished.
Much better, don't you think?
I love how the wax gives it a nice shine and sheen. I highly recommend this as a final step for anyone painting furniture. It's worth the extra time and effort.
Thanks for visiting. Have a Blissfulicious day!
