My friend gave me this table,
and I knew right away what I wanted it to be turquoise.
I sanded the top down to the bare wood, then roughed it up for a very rustic look.
Then, I painted the base in SW Freshwater
and did some distressing.
The top was stained with Minwax Provincial.
I love how all the dents and dings stain darker than the rest.
I also stained the legs with the Provincial to antique the turquoise. I just wiped it on, let it sit a minute, and wiped it off. If some areas were a little heavy, I simply sanded it once it was more dry.
Now all that is left is the final finish (topcoat).
I’ll be back in a day to two for some Product Knowledge 101.
