My latest project to fulfill my painting addiction is my coffee table in my great room.
This is a before shot. When I first painted this table a few years ago I just slapped some apple green paint on it and them brushed on some watered down brown paint to age it. Now I will show you how I redid it.
Another before shot. You can see the unfinished leg.
You can also see how this old paint is yellower.
This is the first coat of paint. I used Sherwin Williams Garden Sage in a satin finish.
Before the legs were not painted, but this time I painted them, too.
Now I am adding the Valspar translucent glaze in Mocha. I put it on with a sponge applicator and then wiped it off with a rag. This shows the difference the glaze makes. I sanded the edges and some places on the legs and top before glazing.
This is how it looks after wiping the glaze back off. You can see where I sanded places that it might naturally wear with time. I did it a little heavier on top right here where someone would have put their big feet on the table.
After the glaze dried over night I then polished the top and sides with this finishing wax.
This time I used an electric polisher and then I also polished by hand.
Here you can really see the distressing and the layers of colors.
I distressed heavily around the knobs where they would naturally get worn.
Now it isn't all streaky and freaky like before.
This table is next, but it won't be green.
I noticed that yesterday's post was number 200!! I can't believe it. I didn't know I had so much to say and share when I started this blog a few months ago. It has been so much fun sharing my home and projects with you. I want to thank you for being my readers, followers and good friends. I hope I can meet some of you in person some day.
