I have had this little table for over 20 years. I bought it from an antique shop back before I liked antiques. I needed a small table for our entry way in our first home and this was perfect.
It was brown wood at the time. Over the years I spray painted it black. I used in several different rooms and it finally ended up in our basement. I never wanted to part with it though.
I needed a night stand for our guest room and decided this table would be perfect. I am trying to re-do the guest room using what I have. I love to go shopping in our basement!
I STILL have Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint left. It really does go a long way. I wanted this table white and not too chippy so added the bonding agent when I mixed up the paint.
WELL I had a hard time covering the black paint so it needed a few coats. On my last coat I mixed more paint and forgot to add the bonding agent! After having two coats with the bonding agent I was surprised to see all my paint falling off from just the last coat of paint!
What I did think was cool was that it went all the way down to the original wood. I did not want it white with black showing through which is why I chose to use the bonding agent. I love that the black fell right off and the wood is showing!
You just never know with this paint......
I waxed this table with both clear and a bit of dark wax. I actually love how it turned out! It is not what I envisioned but it works!
I like how this table has so much dimension to it. It is kind of fun! I also like that it is one piece I have held on to for so many years.
A few little things left and our guest room is done!
