From Start to Finish

The hubby and I bought a table from a local shop that was in pretty good shape. However, we decided to make it look even better by sanding it down and painting it to match the colors for our kitchen theme. Here are the pictures from start to finish. Enjoy!

Clear coated table before

We sanded everything down and then spray painted the legs in a Satin Black

Then we took a sponge and wiped Cut Ruby by Valspar paint over the top of the table. We did this wiping process three times to get the desired deepness of red but still be able to see a wood texture through it.

We also replaced the drawer knobs and applied the same wiping technique to the faces of each drawer.

We then took some chairs and spray painted them with Satin Black. Next I took the Cut Ruby paint and randomly picked places to paint it on the chair to give it a weathered/rustic look. We then spray painted 2 coats of Satin Clear over the whole chair.

The finished look! Now to add curtains to those windows...
