Entry Table Before & After

 

I can’t even contain how excited I am to show you my latest project! It is by far my favorite of anything I have done yet!!!

It’s an entry table that I redid for my bff from high school for her wedding present. She is absolutely one of the most strong, wonderful, amazing girls I have ever met … one day I will tell you about her amazing story. Anyway, I just love her and was so excited to do something fun for her home. She already had the table, and when she showed it to me I instantly fell in love with the detail and knew it was going to be amazing!

Here’s how it looked before I got my hands on it!

Mmm, K. I’m thinking Tropical Bay by Valspar is my new favorite color. Not too bright, not too gray … it’s perfect, don’t ya think? I will definitely be using it again in the future.

 

The Process 

Primer Valspar (tinted a medium brown)

Paint  Valspar Tropical Bay

Distressed with razor blade

Glaze Custom mixed with stain and clear mixing glaze

Stain Rust – oleum (Kona)

Top Coat Poly by Varathane in semi gloss

 

 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my stuff! I can’t wait to show you some shots of Mandee’s wedding later this week. I got to help decorate and it turned out amazing!
