I picked up this little table at a thrift store, looking nothing like it does now. You can see the before picture below. I used a can of oops paint and mixed a small amount with Plaster or Paris to make my own chalk paint, EASY! I then tried waxing a piece of furniture for the first time ever. I used a dark wax from Minwax and I loved the look when it settled into all the crevices. I don't think waxing is easier than applying a coat of poly but it does give a different look and feels great! I think I need more practice waxing!
Here you can see how the dark wax settled nicely into some of the imperfections on the table. I also lightly sanded the edges.
I thinks its the prefect size for for a bedside table
or it could fit anywhere!
Here is the "before" with the mismatched top. It actually had a huge, heavy laminate counter top on it that made this little table entirely too ugly and top heavy. So I replaced it with a board I already had from some old shelving.
Thanks for stopping by!
