Before and Almost After, the story of a table...

So here is the sorry little dumplin' of a table before. 

Here she is sporting her new two coats of paint.  

And here she is "almost" after being painted, distressed and waxed.  I touched up a couple of spots where I was a bit overzealous with the sanding block and it needs another coat of wax.  But she is "almost" an after... 

It's funny, as much as I am loving the look of painted cabinets and painted dressers, etc.  I have such a hard time lifting a paintbrush to a pretty piece of wood.  Not so much the problem here.  This beauty was totally covered in chocolate brown paint when we got her from the Salvation Army shop. Had no qualms what-so-ever about covering this with white Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! 

This little table will fit in between the two wing back chairs in the living room.  The wing back chairs will make for an interesting project...picked those up at St. Vincent de Paul in Wisconsin and hauled them back down here to Kentucky.  They are dirty, and the fabric is dated.  So, I am going to try painting those too!  I'll be sure to post about that be it a success or a whopping failure!  Can't hurt them, all that can happen is we decide to have them reupholstered anyway.
