Of course, I almost forgot to take a before picture! It was late when I started working on this one, so below is what I got. After this, I went to sanding the top off. I didn't bother with legs, since I was using ASCP in Arles. I'm pretty sure I put about 3 coats on this before the table was yellow enough to satisfy me.
I then distressed around all the sharp edges and decorative parts of the leg. I stained the top using Cabot Dark Walnut Stain and used a cheap foam brush. Have you tried this yet? I used to use a rag for wax, but I'm never going back. You have so much control with a foam brush. I used the same brush to lightly apply the wax all over the yellow paint. And then, just because I love foam brushes so much now (Really, I am a HUGE fan, converted for life), I used a clean foam brush to apply Minwax Satin Polycrylic to the entire table.
This one looks pretty in my apartment, but will be making its way to the booth soon! Thanks for checking it out! Have you got a special fall table?
