Country Chic Table Makeover

When I was offered the chance to work with Country Chic Paint, I was over the moon excited! I first tried Country Chic paint last year on this coffee table my husband built and absolutely loved working with it!

The best thing about this paint is, that it’s easy to work with. From start to finish. I saw this table on an online garage sale site and knew I had to have it! It’s the perfect hallway table, plus, I kinda liked that mustardy color. After bringing it home, I saw it needed some TLC so I decided to give it a makeover.

I gave the table a quick wipe down, and then sanded the top. It had some bubbles on the top from water damage but a light sanding did the trick. I gave it two coats of Vanilla Frosting. After letting it dry completely, I applied clear wax using a circular motion. I immediately wiped it off using straight swipes. Once wiped off, I used 80 grit sandpaper and gently distressed in areas that would normally receive wear. I then applied a coat of antique wax using the same technique as the clear wax. I made sure to rub it into all the corners and crevices and especially the lines that the sandpaper made. Using a clean, dry cloth, I wiped off the wax, leaving on just the right amount for that antique look. I find this technique so quick and easy and the perfect way to give it that worn look that I love!

I love the antique look of my new table!
