Weathered Farmhouse Table (part 2)

Here is how I finished my table...

I stained it the table using  Minwax Dark Walnut stain and let it dry overnight.


I then applied minwax paste wax to the areas I didn't want the paint to adhere too.  I applied a blue/grey paint to the surface and let it dry.  Then I used a metal scraper to remove most of the paint.  I repeated that step applying a cream coloured paint.  Again, I removed the paint with a scraper but I also used a heat gun to make the paint bubble and peel.  This is what it looked like when I finished...




I thought I liked it until I put it in the den.  Too dark!  So I applied another coat of cream coloured paint to the entire table to try and lighten it.  Once dry I used my palm sander to remove the paint.  The second coat of cream paint helped to lighten the table and blend the colors.  I like it much better! I think it looks old and weathered, but I'll let you be the judge!  









Here it is in my den...



Thank you for stopping by...
