It was sturdy and stable, but it need of some love.

First off, she wanted to repair the flaking stain on the table top. Abbey sanded off the original finish, applied a walnut stain, then sealed it with Hemp Oil to re-hydrate the wood and add protection.

Next, she sanded the sides of the drawer well to make it glide more easily, and cleaned the base and legs.

She applied three coats of this lovely, deep navy color called Peacoat and used the wet distressing technique. This revealed some of the original wood color on the edges and raised areas.

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture that has become a growing trend. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
