I've been teasing all of you about this one, mainly cuz it too so long! But it's finally done and ready to be revealed! (I apologize ahead of time for the "completed" photos, it was dusk and the color red overshot everything!)
Like I said, crappy lighting. But don't they look beautiful?? Boy, what a PROCESS this was!
Here we go;
First I lightly sanded everything down. Then wiped it all with tacky cloth. Then I started with one coat of Rustoleum White Primer 2x Coverage.
Once dry, I applied two spray paint coats of Rustoleum Semi Gloss White 2x Coverage. GREAT stuff!! After the tables were dry it was time to distress. I used steel wool because I didn't want to distress too much.
I distressed all the edges, and a few extra places. I love the look! Very shabby chic. Next up was Minwax Paste Wax for darker woods. I knew this would creep into the crevices and give everything a slightly dirty, antiqued look.
See that tint? Perfect. I slobbered on the wax, none too neatly, then buffed it off with a clean rag. Everything came out beautifully!!
Distressed up close;
I would love to give you all a view of them against my blue jean slip covered couch, but my hubby has turned my living room into a complete junk pile. Honest! Don't believe me? Wait til Monday when I do a post about cleaning it up, cuz this lady is DONE with not being able to use my living room. The decluttering is about to begin! Again, lol!
Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed sharing with you!
