It’s Themed Furniture Thursday!!!
This month’s theme is two toned. You have seen many of my other two toned projects like my
When this month’s theme was announced I knew just the piece for it!
I found this piece at a yard sale for free.
I was buying two other pieces, and when I asked the price of this one she told me I could have it for free if I bought the other two.
It was no beauty. It had hunter green legs and an orange top (I forgot to take the photo before I sanded off the orange). Very festive for Halloween, but not for anyone’s living room.
I started by sanding off all the orange paint with my electric sander. I was psyched to see what good shape the wood was in underneath.
I then painted the legs of the table with two coats of Plaster Paint in Grey Silk.
Once the paint had dried, I distressed it and used a coat of both clear and dark wax to age it.
I then stained the top of the table with two coats of Minwax stain in Dark Walnut.
I then stenciled the top and coated the top in a poly.
Make sure you check out all of my other friends’ projects down below!
