Come find out how Marnia from Marnia’s Measures & Treasures transformed this flea market find into a stunning accent piece with Vanilla Frosting, antiquing wax, and glaze!

I picked up this lovely round side table at our local flea market a few weeks back and I’m loving how it turned out. So much so, that I decided to keep it!

It was in pretty rough shape and I was curious what was under that thick coat of paint! Once I stripped down the top I fell in love with the wood grain and decided to enhance it, rather than cover it. For this I used CC Antiquing Wax applied with a soft lint free cloth. For the rest of the piece I painted in Vanilla Frosting, let dry and then rubbed on a generous amount of Dark Roast Glaze and using a soft lint free, damp (not wet) cloth I removed any excess and reapplied where desired. With the glaze you’ll have more time to play before the paint sets to get the look you want.
