I love Before and Afters so much, don’t you??
This is the coffee table on my porch in my last post. I bought it at an occasional store, and it was the right size and shape, just not the right colors for me.
Here’s the frame before I had spray painted it that charcoal color:
So I used an electric sander on the top to get rid of most of the paint. I didn’t use a paint stripper because I wanted kind of a mottled, weathered look, so I wanted to encourage an uneven color. And because paint stripper scares me.
Then I used a water-and-paint mixture to “blue-wash” it. And there we go!
I’ve got another Before and After coming up soon!
