Rustic Chippy & Turquoise

Inspired by this amazing table which I saw a while back. When I started sanding down the top of my flea market find I knew that was where I was going with this.


Look at the curves on this....love! Took three 150 sanding discs and an hour to strip her down.The wood under the old stain is beautiful...planky and rustic.

  I stained the top in a mix of Minwax Dark Walnut and Ebony followed up several coats of wipe on poly.



Painted turquoise just as my inspiration piece. I swiped on Vaseline in areas I didn't want the paint to grab to give it a chippy worn look. Glazed it in charcoal to tone it down a bit, wipe on poly and done. I love it almost as much as European Paint Finishes piece.



Don't ya love those who inspire you?
