Antique Coffee Table

Isn't it always fun to be given free furniture?  I was happy to get this one~

The top was so beat up, but it cleaned up nicely after it was stripped, sanded and stained.

I used Old White CP for the base.  The plan was to dry brush it on, but my brush happened to be a little wet, so I did sort of a wet/dry brushing application.  :)  I just kept my brush wet with a teeny bit of water and brushed on super small amounts of paint.  I probably only used  about a tablespoon of paint on the entire table.

I sealed the base with 2 coats of Minwax Paste Wax~
I haven't been using the Minwax wax lately, but I really loved how quickly it dries and is ready to be buffed.  The Annie wax seems to take much longer...but that's just me.  :)

The top of the table got 3 coats of Tung Oil~

Here's my freebie before picture~

Now it's all cute and ready for a new living room~

Great makeover. I totally agree about minwax over AS wax. It is SO much easier to work with.

Love the table and so many of your pieces. I just found your blog today and it is so great to see all the wonderful painting and aging you do. JUST LOVE IT!!!! I've been doing lots of things around my home too so it's nice to see how some colors look aged. I think I saw one of my gingerbread dolls on your past projects page. I definitely need to make more of those girls. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work!

Love the finish on the legs! Tell me about the brush for wax. Is it Annie Sloan? I've been disappointed with the AS wax lately and am wondering if a brush would help things.

The Far Fifty said...

You've done some really great pieces lately! I really love that FP desk you did in blue. The fabric in the drawer is fantastic!

Frøken Frida said...

Chrissie said...

So pretty! I am really loving natural tops lately. When you use the tung oil do you finish with anything on top? Like poly etc

Mrs. Sutton said...

Very nicely done - the drawer lining looks great. It's amazing to see what can be done with formerly beat up furniture - hurray for upcycling!

debber said...

Nice to meet you. :)
