Two In A Row

This table was the coffee table version of the table I did here.  
I painted it with one coat of the same blue/grey oops paint mixed into homemade chalk paint, distressed and waxed with the dark wax "glaze" technique

I sanded down the top and stained it with Minwax Dark Walnut and finished with a coat of wipe on poly.
I just noticed the swirl detail looks like a handlebar mustache!
When I am working on smaller pieces, I like to work on multiple pieces so while one is drying, I start on the next. By the time I am done painting the second piece, the first one is dry and ready for their second coat.
I used the same paint on this table (two coats) and distressed. You could see a little bleed through on the top so I finished with the dark wax "glaze" technique so it would blend in.
I like to be able to get so much accomplished. I was able to get both these tables done in one day!

  1. Lovely tables. Number one is my favorite. I like how you get so much done so quickly. I've been torturing the same coffee table for a few years now and am only half way through!

    1. Thank you! I agree, you didn't even notice the detail until it was painted.

    1. Thank you! Teal is such a great color I can see how it would have worked on that table too.

    1. Thank you! I actually didn't use glaze. I used Annie Sloan dark wax mixed with paint thinner to give it a glaze like consistency. So it gives color and waxes at the same time. I have tried regular glaze, but I am not good at it.

    1. Thank you so much! It's funny, but when I was painting them, I really loved the second table more, but the first one got a much better reaction and sold much faster.
