Distressed Striped Table

I think I'm finally finished with the large pieces in my den/craft room.......for now :) The last piece that I needed to complete the room was a good sized table to be able to spread my things out and really utilize for crafting and working.


 
 
 
When my mom bought a new kitchen table she gave me her old one! Yay! Remember what I did with the old chair legs? You can read HERE about how I turned them into wreath hangers!

 
 Now what I really need to do is get organized!! I have enough furniture packed into this room that I should be organized but I have an overflowing stash of fabric/craft supplies to last a century! I've been looking at these storage options. I will, hopfully soon, share my process to get organized in this space with you!

 
Okay, back to my table makeover......I decided to paint the original honey oak table white to stick with the theme of the room which has a light green, black and white palette. I started by priming the entire table.

 
 

 

I then used a high-gloss white which added the shine that I wanted for this table!
 I didn't want just a plain white table......although pretty, it was pretty boring. I decided to try a thick stripe using a metallic glaze by Martha Stewart.....it was exactly what I wanted!! I taped off 6.5" sections with painters tape and painted every other section with my glaze.


 


When the stripes were semi-dry but still a bit tacky I used a wet wipe to rub off some of the glaze so that it looked a bit worn and distressed. I sanded around the edges of the table as well.





Here is how it turned out......

 





 





 
This is probably the last time you'll see it looking so neat and clean :) Ideally, I'll want glass cut to fit the top of the table to keep it protected, some functional storage containers and good lighting. A table lamp similar to this Brookfield desk lamp would be perfect! I have it all worked out in my head, just need to put everything together! Isn't it always like that.....you always have the perfect vision in your head, just need to execute that vision! I will be sure to show you a full room reveal when everything is in order!

 
I hope you enjoyed my table makeover and stay tuned for more details and organizational tips!
 
 
Make it a beautiful day :)

  5. glaze is a well-kept secret. I love that it's easier to wet wipe off to distress than sanding. Nice work!

  21. This is a fab-dabulous idea. I never would've thought to distress a metallic glaze before, but the result is unexpected and interesting and beautiful. What I esPESHially love, though, is your chevron bench! Perfection.
