1st – can i just say that i thought that i was going to have way more time for blogging – uhhhh…no i dont!!!  I am so busy with furniture its crazy!!!  I’m definitely not complaining – i love that people are buying my stuff before its even done!!!  It makes me believe that this whole thing will work out great :)

Anyways – on to the fun stuff!

Emily @ Notions on Nesting brought over some pieces a while back for some fresh paint.  One of the pieces was this antique little side table – not in the best shape, but super cute.

All – well most of the paint had already been stripped so i gave it a light sand and painted it a creamy white, then heavily distressed it with a 60 grit sanding block.

The top was stained, then after the stain was dry, the same creamy white was dry brushed on top and then i took some steel wool to it and sanded off some of the white.  Love the top – Love the table!!

    I love to refinish furniture too and this table is gorgeous. I can see a finial in the center of that bottom where the leg brackets meet! This is so awesome…it will be gone soon if it isn't already.

    I would love to do some furniture refinishing myself, but I'm having a hard time finding furniture to refinish! Where do you find such cute pieces with such great bones? Any tips for someone on a very limited budget finding cute refinishable furniture?

    Thanks!!!

    Are you kidding me???? You are amazing! I would NEVER have thought to stain a top and then dry brush paint on it. It looks soooo good! You are very talented!

    I would love for you to pop over to my new blog if you get a second.
