HALF TABLE MAKEOVER


Okay......here's the AFTER on this one.  To see the before and how I acquired this little table, click here.

For a quick tutorial on how to achieve this look, click below.

Since I wasn't using chalk paint on this one, I did sand it a little so that the paint would 'grab' to the surface.  
Then, I gave it one coat of the same 'pink' that I used in this post.


After that dried, I painted a second coat using the turquoise I had specially mixed.


Annnnd, after THAT dried, I gave it some serious distressing using my Mouse sander by Black and Decker.


Last step?  Brush Minwax Special Walnut over the entire piece.  Then quickly wipe it off using a soft cloth.


Now, just let it dry again.  Sometimes this takes a couple days since the Minwax is oil base.



Didn't it turn out TOOO CUTE.  Love, love, love me some auctions.  Gotta go back soon.
Check back soon and I'll show ya how the 3 surface table turned out too.
