So I don’t want to bore you with more white tables (because we did several more sets) but pretty soon I got bored with it too! So I bought what inspired me on Pinterest, Annie Sloan Duck Egg. It is such a pretty shade of blue. I bought a couple of coffee tables for cheap, and painted them identical, and did NOT distress them. Instead I used dark wax to give them a slightly smooth, aged look.
This is so funny, most people wouldn’t notice this, but I hadn’t completely finished waxing with dark wax when I took these pictures. See the leg on the right? No wax. That gives you an idea of the before and after.
This table was actually an amazing find! It was a Lane Furniture piece, which are usually super expensive and made from hardwood (different from solid wood).
Both were scooped up by college-age girls looking to redecorate their apartments! One even wanted to buy the rug! Ha!
