Awhile back I found a well made Mission Style Table that was very grungy, but solid wood and I though I could change it up.
The top was in bad condition, but sold wood and I thought this table could have a farmhouse look with some altering. I got out my handsaw and cut out the slats on the bottoms. I sanded the top and sealed it with tung oil/dark wax and it was a beauty!The planks on the top are tong-and-groove and you can see the wear on the wood and its so nice! For the base, I mixed up some Flow Blue milk paint by Miss Mustard Seed and painted it with 2 coats and waited for the chippy magic to happen. Since the wood was pretty dry it didn't chip as much as I wanted so I helped it along by scraping it with my spackle knife.
The last step was to seal the table with clear wax.

From Craftsman Style to Farmhouse Style!
