Faye from Farm Life Best Life gave these two-tier tables a major upgrade with Cheesecake, Antiquing Wax, and Natural!

When I came across this pair of step tables, although they looked as if they’d lost all their step, I knew that if I spent a little time with them, I could most certainly get them dancing once again!

Get this… I was a two-step and line-dance instructor for a short time MANY years back. Ya… for real! It was awesome fun! Although that was about 24 years ago, it only feels like a few years ago to me. Shortly into that time of my life, I met my now husband (my Farmer). And get this… he has 2 left feet — so needless to say, my dance instructing days ended rather quickly! Good lookin’ cowboys that couldn’t dance were WAY more fun than a dance floor! Ha! 😉

“Teach us how to two-step Faye!” — were the words I swore these 2 step tables were hollering at me when I walked past them. After a few easy and enjoyable steps, I had them OWNING the dance floor!

  • Lightly sanded both pieces, and wiped down clean
  • Stained and varnished table-top areas (that were once covered in leather pieces) with Varathane’s ‘Premium Wood Stain’ in the colour ‘American Walnut’, and ‘Fast Drying Professional Clear Finish 1100 Satin Oil Based’
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in my favourite colour ‘Cheesecake’ ~ for the farmhouse white tone I was after
  • Lightly sanded bodies with sanding block ~ for the distressed look I was after
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Natural Wax’ and ‘Antiquing Wax’ to the bodies ~ for the aged look I was after

You should see these 2 tables dancing! Perhaps you have some room in your home for them to show off their restored dance moves?! These 2 tables are for YOU, and I’d ❤ to see them dancing in your home!
