It’s Themed Furniture Thursday my friends!
If you’re new here, this is where my blogging buddies and I choose a monthly theme (like this month’s Red, White and Blue) and do our own interpretation of it.
I love spring and summer because it’s yard sale season. I come across the majority of my furniture finds there, and I stock up for the the colder months of the year and keep them in my storage unit.
Last year I came across this cool console table that had these great claw feet. It’s the second piece I have recently run across with claw feet — if you remember my other little table from a few weeks ago.
This table was a dated color, and it was scratched all to heck with the name Jayden written all over it in black marker.
Jayden apparently loved this table.
I cleaned it up with some Simple Green and lightly sanded over the top with my trusty orbital sander.
I gave it a couple of coats of Decoart’s Chalky Finish Paint in Whisper.
After that had dried I gave it a coat of Americana Creme Wax, and then went over that lightly with Americana Dark Wax. Anywhere the dark wax looked too harsh I buffed it off with a little more of the clear wax.
I think it turned out pretty cute!
I’ll be taking it down to my booth tomorrow!

How lovely. The table has great lines and now…. a beautiful creamy white color. Bravo on a great makeover. Susie from The Chelsea Project
