Wear it Down

If you can tell by the left side of this before picture here, Jenny’s table was some kind of funky, rusty, fake wood color.  The right side is where she had already started sanding, I assume.  I wouldn’t know because I always skip that step.  Sanding?  Psh!  PRIMING?  Hah!  That’s why my projects never turn out all that amazing.  Laziness: a quiet curse.  (Jenny’s got my back though, because she actually started that sanding job … um … three years ago.  Then she got busy and stuff.  So they just used the table like that for three years.  I totally understand.)
Anyway, after sanding and stripping and many coats of poly, she got down deep into the grain for a heavily weathered look, making her old table look even older.  But older in a much cooler way!
See the how to on her blog Days of Chalk and Chocolate . (Warning: you are in for a surprise.  A very hairy, cummerbund-ed, awesome surprise.)

  3. Thanks for featuring my table!!! I appreciate it so much!

  4. BAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I had to see what could possibly be so hairy about a table refinish. That is SOME hair!! Did we actually think that was hot at one time? Please no!

  5. Could you tell me what kind of finish you use on the top to make it so shiny? Thank you!
