Hope your weekend was great! We did a fair amount including visiting Kidzexplore, fun entertainment for the girls, but more of that later. Today I wanted to share my table makeover, from a honey stained table to a painted piece. In a earlier post I showed the after, but wanted to share with you all the process.
|Here is the Before Picture|
I used two paint colors from Benjamin Moore, Ballet white and a combination of brown and ballet white for a little depth. I also added minwax between the paint layers if an area looked too pale. For that added rustic look I chipped the table just a bit on the edges and filled them in with the dark stain minwax. I used just a paint brush I had on hand, nothing fancy. After I was satisfied with the overall look I added the Ann Sloan Wax to complete the project. The wax really makes such a difference in giving a painted piece a great professional look and the application is so effortless. I give this product excellent reviews!

So there you have it. This painted piece took me a couple of hours to complete and I personally love the look.
Just as a quick aside...I recently painted this barstool. Please check back later for tutorial
