Mamaws Antique Table with a new life

My Mamaw was always trying to get me to take this table to take home...I never seemed to have time.. When she passed, I got the table...Life lesson, don't put off....

I have had it sitting in storage and then to our hunting camp and back to just never seemed to fit anywhere....finally I decided to do something different and see what happened.

I took it all apart....:) :)

I sanded and applied Kilz primer to the top, it was in pretty bad condition, and then I used RustOleum Professional (almond) and painted the whole thing...those little spindles are a pain in the backside....It took a couple coats...and then let it dry for about 3 days.

 I then distressed it in all the right places. Then got my handy Mocha Glaze and a brush, and got to work. I tried to enhance all the areas that gave the table it's character.

I decided that the plain was just not good enough and found some stencils and more glaze...
I love how the top turned out.

I think Mamaw would be proud of this table now....
I know she is looking down and smiling...
She finally got that Dang Table!!!
