Rustic Table ~ Start to Finish


I am really disappointed in the quality of photos.  Unfortunately, I finished the table tonight and the lighting in Stacey’s Egg Shop (where I do most of the work) was rather dim at that hour.  But I will press on and show you start to finish of this wood table I purchased at Goodwill:


Here it is in the beginning.  I had just begun to sand the top and do a rough sand all around.


Here is my brilliant idea of flipping the table upside down and painting the legs.  I thought this would make it much easier.  Not so much.  No matter how you slice it, part of the legs will be close to the ground. 


I painted the legs with primer and white paint.


Started sanding the very beat up top of the table…



Started to rain directly after applying the stain.  Bummer.


Layered light and a little darker gray paint on bottom part of table.


The top is distressed and waxed.  I love how it turned out.


The legs are distressed and waxed.


I love how the darker gray under the lighter gray and the white paint give it depth.

Your table looks great, you did an awesome job. I'm curious about the colored doors (I think?) in the background, they look very cool.
