so we picked up this table at a yard sale it needed a little fixing on top from a crack but nothing a little sanding and wood filler couldn't fix :)
first i sanded down the crack till it was flat then used wood filler
then sanded that down till smooth. then did those steps once more till all smooth and flat.
I wanted to paint the top white and the bottom a slit mint shade. so i mixed old white chalk paint with a green craft paint and mixed til desired color. i also add a little water to thin my chalk paint i like to work with thinner paint
then put two coat of the minty chalk paint on the bottom.
i then painted the top with just old white chalk paint but then decided to also use a eggshell white on top. just to make it a little more easy to care for than using wax to seal it. (i love wax but just wanted to try something different since i had this stuff laying around hehe )
i painted about 4-5 coats on top cause the table top was showing through. i also painted the top very rough i didn't want it to smooth.
then sanded and destressed the top and bottom then used clear wax with a tiny tiny pit of the dark wax on the bottom half
let the wax dry then buff out.
here is the finished product :) i wish i could keep her but it needed to be sold, .... one can not have 4 dinning tables ;) she is now very happy in her new home
