How to Make Weathered Wood Stain and a Table Makeover

Hey y'all...I can't wait to share this project with you today! A couple of weeks ago I scored this antique table at an estate sale: I know she is a diamond in the rough but I saw a lot of possibility. This table is heavy and an antique. The legs on her are beautiful too. I have a tried-and-true method to remove veneer from pieces like this. As soon as I got home from the estate sale I couldn't wait to get to work.

Painted End Table in ASCP Aubusson Blue

Hey y'all! The house is starting to come together, granted it's happening a little more slowly than I would like, but that could also be because I am the queen of procrastination.  Nonetheless, more and more projects are getting complete, which makes me happy :) I've had this end table for several years and for about the past 2 years I have toyed around with the idea of painting it, but I was never 100% sure that's what I wanted to do.  Or what ... read more
