Aqua Side Table


Right before Christmas I found this very sturdy, but dinged up side table and brought it home.  
Before:

The table was solid wood and I thought it would look good in a soft aqua/turquoise color so I went to my "lab" (aka garage) and mixed paint until I got the color I was envisioning and made it into chalk paint.  After a few goats of paint, I distressed and sealed the table with dark wax/hemp oil.  The last step was finding an antique pull from my stash.
