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!
