Side Table

So here she is!
My beautiful side table.
The pictures don't do her justice!

Her is what she looked like when I drove 40 miles to pick her up.

She was in pretty rough shape but I fell in love with her curves and details and the price was right.
So we loaded her up into the back of my SUV!


I had to glue on that missing trim shown in the picture above.

I don't usually sand my pieces when I know I'm painting with chalk or milk paint but in this case I wanted to smooth out the top so light sanding was in order.

The result is smooth as butter!

Love all that chippy goodness!


After 2 coats of 

I lightly sanded and distressed
wiped clean and then applied white wax.
I let it set for 24 hours and then buffed it with an old T-shirt.

And one last look at the before...


 Thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
