{Cutest little side table – a refinish}


1st – can i just say that i thought that i was going to have way more time for blogging – uhhhh…no i dont!!!  I am so busy with furniture its crazy!!!  I’m definitely not complaining – i love that people are buying my stuff before its even done!!!  It makes me believe that this whole thing will work out great :)

Anyways – on to the fun stuff!

Emily @ Notions on Nesting brought over some pieces a while back for some fresh paint.  One of the pieces was this antique little side table – not in the best shape, but super cute.

All – well most of the paint had already been stripped so i gave it a light sand and painted it a creamy white, then heavily distressed it with a 60 grit sanding block.

The top was stained, then after the stain was dry, the same creamy white was dry brushed on top and then i took some steel wool to it and sanded off some of the white.  Love the top – Love the table!!

    Oh I just love the white dry brushed on top! I have never tried that technique but you sure make me want to grab any piece of furniture and give it a shot! Beautiful makeover and congrats on the new job going so well!

    I love to refinish furniture too and this table is gorgeous. I can see a finial in the center of that bottom where the leg brackets meet! This is so awesome…it will be gone soon if it isn't already.

    I would love to do some furniture refinishing myself, but I'm having a hard time finding furniture to refinish! Where do you find such cute pieces with such great bones? Any tips for someone on a very limited budget finding cute refinishable furniture?

    The table turned out with the perfect amount of shabbiness and refinement, Sausha. The best of luck with your new furniture business.

    Are you kidding me???? You are amazing! I would NEVER have thought to stain a top and then dry brush paint on it. It looks soooo good! You are very talented!

    I would love for you to pop over to my new blog if you get a second.
