Find out how Marnia from Marnia’s Measures & Treasures used Liquorice and Antiquing Wax to give this side table a western-style upgrade!

I’d have to say that country western is my favourite decor, so when I was given this pine table at a garage sale I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it! I’m so happy with it that it may have a permanent spot in my shop for when the men stop by…a perfect spot to wait while their wives shop don’t you think!?

First I gave the piece a fine sanding (to get rid of the pencil marks) and a wipe down. I then used Country Chic Paint in Liquorice. I set the paper in the wet paint to adhere. Once dry I sanded in designated areas. I then used The antiquing wax to deepen the pine, making sure to add a little extra in the grooves for that rustic charm.

I am not too concerned about the wear and tear on this handsome side but if I were, I’d use Country Chic Paint’s Tough Coat for the table top to protect it.

Well, that about wrangles up this project. I hope you enjoyed this makeover!
