When I first started this project I could really see this table in blue. However, I was so worried I would not find a place in our new home (which I have no idea where it will be nor what it will look like) that I went with off white. I always go for safe and then I hate it. I posted on my facebook page and received lots of encouragement to go for the turquoise instead! Little did I know the havoc that would cause. It ended up being a bigger problem strippinf off the white than i had anticipated but after several attempts and some elbow grease I succeeded!
I hope you enjoy the finished product as much as I do and it will inspire you to come up with something lovely for your own home! Happy Painting!
Here are a few close up pictures so you can see the distressing and some of the glaze work on this piece. I know...there are those of you who don't get it and wonder why I would paint and then turn around and sand it off...I just like the old vintage look :) and trust me...this kind of "finish" works hello well with 7 kids!
Note: I still must add a coat of clear wax in 72 hours... but I don't imagine it will change the look all that much and I couldn't wait to share!
I'm going to try my hand at my first link up with this item so head on over to 'From My Front Porch To Yours' Just click on the picture and it will take you right on over there!
