I got this table as part of the free furniture haul in August.
I have been seeing so many nice mid century modern makeovers that are white and wood tone and this was going to be perfect for it.
I started by sanding the drawers and stripping the legs. I used Citrisolve for the legs and it did a great job, but I didn't know how to get it off round legs with a flat scraper. I pretty much made a giant mess and used a whole bunch of things I am sure were not meant to remove the stripper, but it worked!
I painted the body of the table and handles with three coats of SW paint in their base white mixed into DIY chalk paint.
I coated the drawers and legs with Annie Sloan dark wax mixed with paint thinner and I love the color they became!
I didn't distress because I knew it wouldn't go with this look.
Although I did line the drawers with this funkadelic penguin fabric I got over the summer. I love this crazy fabric and just thought it would be a fun surprise to find.
