This fall I was out yardsaling and not having much luck. At the beginning of the summer it seemed like every yard sale I went to was a good one. Then I had a really long dry run, none of them were any good. At one of the last yard sales of the season I happen to spot this end table
and another end table that was just as old. This one has so much detail on
it, I just knew that it would look beautiful in white.
I started to paint it in ascp but it immediately bled through. I then pulled out the oil based Kilz primer and gave it a good coat of that.
I wanted the top to be stained so I sanded it down really good. It sanded off in a reddish color.
I stained it in Min Wax dark stain and then used rub on poly on the top. I put on about three to four coats of poly. I then distressed the whole piece which took some time because of all the detailing.
I knew it would be beautiful when it was done though, and it was.
This little gem sold within the first hour of the show, I really hated to part with it though. Sometimes I would just like to keep them all.
