Now I am under pressure to finish my projects that are laying around at various stages of completion. We got back home from my parent's house late last night and this morning I got right to work on my quest to refill my space at the shop. I found this vintage, pedestal coffee table at a yard sale, a couple of weeks ago, for only $3! The table is solid wood and I love the pedestal base with the curved legs.
The top was scratched and the stain was worn off in places. I used my palm sander to remove all the old stain and prepare the table for its new look.
I wanted to try something different with this table. I mixed my gray paint 50/50 with water to make it like a thin stain. I painted it on and rubbed the paint into the wood with a lint free rag. After it dried, I painted on Ralph Lauren's glaze in smoke color and rubbed most of it off with another clean rag.
I love how the finish came out with the dark wood showing through in places. It will be perfect in a French, country cottage now!
