What to do with all the neglect on a coffee table?

Well paint it of course.

Happy Monday bloggy friends.

Trevor and I scooped up this trashed provincial coffee table at a garage sale a few weeks ago and I got around to finishing it a week ago just haven't posted the photos yet.

The finish on the top was mashed. water rings, peeling finish, chips. yike!

see below for before photo

I beat the snot out of this puppy with the palm sander and gave it 2 coats of Annie Sloan Paris Grey. I did light distressing as usual as I am not usually a super chippy person and added my 2 different types of dark waxes. I also did a whitewashing on the top with pure white after the waxing to give it more dimension and a gorgeous feminine feel.


you can see the sheer amount of damage to the top.

that is the beauty of what we do. this gorgeous solid wood table was headed for the dump without rescuing.



Have a great start to your week.

We are feeling the heat, getting a little sweat mixed in with paint. lol
