Remember the adorable bedroom set I posted in August? Well, the same friend (Kathy) asked me to redo her dining room table, too! Here's what I started with:
It was gorgeous to begin with -- just a little "well loved" on the top. I sanded the piece completely and then I went back over the top to sand it some more. I wanted to make sure the top was super smooth!
And then, I opened the paint can (Kathy bought the paint so it was a surprise for me)... I cannot even explain to you guys how excited I was to see this beautiful color -- it's called Quietude by Sherwin Williams. I loved the color so much, I used it on The Stenciled Bookshelf, too!
After 2 coats of paint, I lightly distressed the entire piece and then gave it 2 coats of Polycrylic.
