I picked up this boring, light wood table with a matching bench at a yard sale. I see this kind of table everywhere, but I decided to buy this particular one because it was so cheap and it came with the bench.
I painted the tops of the table and bench with Coco and the legs with Duck Egg blue Chalk Paint.
Because this is a dining table, I applied two coats of clear wax to the tabletop for extra protection. I distressed and applied a little dark wax along all the edges of the tabletop and bench.
I painted the legs with Coco before painting Duck Egg as the top coat. Then, I heavily distressed the legs, so the Coco base coat and natural wood showed through. I finished the legs with clear and dark wax for an antiqued finish.
This was an easy way to transform a plain and inexpensive kitchen table and bench into a stylish set.
