Hello my friends!
Today we are loading up and going to Kansas City once again. This has been our 4th trip up there in the last couple of months. Topher has a business trip, and the unnamed child and I are tagging along to take advantage of the nice hotel and free food. My parents are once again kindly house sitting for us.
So before we head out of town, I decided to share a quick furniture makeover with you.
My parents got me this pretty little table off of Craigslist. (Sorry for the terrible backlighting)
This was a piece I was wanting to strip and stain, but at closer inspection it was just too damaged to make that happen, so painting it was the way to go.
I mixed up a 50/50 mixture of Plaster Paint’s Seaside and Ocean Breeze. I then dry brushed the entire surface making sure not to get any paint in the crevices so that they would stand out a bit more.
By just doing the dry brushing technique, I didn’t feel that I needed to distress it.
I then just coated it in clear Paste Wax.
This was an easy makeover that had a big impact!
