Furniture Friday....Funky Magazine Table

I was a little excited when I found this table.  So excited...that I jumped right in painting it and forgot to take my "before" pictures.  You will get a "during" picture here....

I found this table from a friend...she found it at a yard sale and didn't want it.  Mine...thank you!

I started by cleaning it really well...wiping all the dirt and grime out of the grooves in the legs.  Then gave her a nice coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Florence.  Let that dry well and came back and distressed it lightly with a warm, clean wet rag.  Off to let that dry well...laundry calling my name!

Next, I put on an even coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax....this only has to sit for at least 30 minutes.  I had a closets to clean it sat for a couple of harm done.  I always come back and buff with a clean, lint free cloth...elbow grease needed!

After working the wax in well...I am left with a nice, rich shine!

Just enough distressing...for an authentic worn look.

This picture made me nutso!!!!  I have o idea why it is so fuzzy...tried everything.  Oh well, I love this little table...not sure whether I am going to let her go or not!

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!  My girls and I are headed to the park to play with some friends and have a little lunch!
