Have I ever told you that I love rustic furniture? Well Im crazy about it, and when I was given this antique round side table I got extremely excited!
I pondered for months trying to decide what I was going to do with this piece. Then suddenly it came to me, I wanted to give this table a hand scraped look.
Here is what the table looked like when I received it.
I really like the white, but it’s just too much white and it looks boring, so I decided to keep the legs white and make the top a dark stain color.
Now I’m faced with sanding or stripping the white paint off the top, so I bought some 30 minute Klean-strip Stripper found at most paint stores: Home Depot, Lowes, ect… and applied this according to the instructions.
This is with one application, so it might take several steps before it’s completely stripped.
Once I got the top stripped I took out my secret tools and distressed this entire side table.
Here are the results:
I hand rasped the edges.
I sanded through the white paint in spots so you could see the original finish beneath.
Here I added wormholes for character and charm.
Then, I added a few cracks to make it look even older. Did I mention it’s super fun to do this?
This is a shot of the top.
This table was so fun to refinish! It went from plain and boring to a piece of art with rustic flare! My family will truly enjoy this piece and it will wear extremely well with the kiddos.
Lastly, here are some final pics with decor.
