A Tale of Two Tables


Junkin' is in full swing here now that all our vacations are over and I found these two Frenchy tables that needed a makeover.  
Before: 


I wanted to get these tables done quickly and in neutral colors  so I pulled out Antique White by  The Urban Rooster and Smokey Grey lightened with Marshmallow Cream and hunkered down with my paintbrush.  After two coats of paint, I distressed and sealed/aged the table with Tung oil/dark wax.

  11. Do you always use your electric sander for distressing, or do you hand sand as well? Did you sand these for distressing? They're gorgeous!
