The top was in bad shape, lots of water ring damage and the wood was bumped up.
These pictures were after I had done loads of sanding on the top with an electric belt sander and palm sander and a couple coats of Kilz Primer.
The next pictures are the priming of the whole thing.

|Front of doors...don't forget the back side|
Ok I really do not like where this is going, so ANOTHER coat of paint is needed.
After one more coat, and sanding again...I liked how it turned out a little more.
After the sanding was over than came the waxing.
I like to use MINWAX Paste Wax on Chalk Paint.
I use a soft natural brush most of the time as I did here on the doors, brushes make it easy to get into all the little crooks and crannies, however, on large areas I use cheese cloth to apply.
Like most, I cannot afford or am willing to pay for the expensive Chalk Paint, or brushes, so I made due...The brushes that I use, I got at Lowes in the Faux area, I think it was called a blending brush? I simply cut them with some sissors to the length and stiffness I want.
After you let the wax sit for a bit, you just use a soft rag ( I like cotton t-shirts) to buff to a shine.
Below are pictures of the finished project.
