My kitchen table was starting to show some wear. The poly was coming off from so much use. Now normally I would have welcomed it and kept it looking aged, but I didn't care for the oak color. I like the dark walnut look. I wanted it to match my kitchen island.
The legs were painted black before.
Sorry for the dark pic, it was the only before I had.
Hubby sanded it down for me!
What a sweety :)
It sat unfinished for almost a week.
I really liked this look, but I knew if I put a clear coating
on it it would look oak colored because it is oak.
I put on two coats of stain and three coats of Waterlox sealer with a brush.
I painted Annie Sloans Old White over the black legs and apron.
I waxed it with light and dark wax.
Here is the new top.
Now you can see how it blends in with my island.
The farm table look I always wanted.
