Reclaimed Top Table

I've been trying to get some furniture painted and into my booth over the last few weeks!! My home has been feeling so cluttered lately and it's been driving me crazy!! I find stuff faster than I can paint it and it seems like I always have a mounting pile that I never have enough time to tackle! Ahh! 

Anyways, I got this table at an estate sale at my grandparent's house. 


As you can see the table looks like it was stripped at one time and it was very wobbly. We tore it completely apart and glued and nailed it all back together so it was much more sturdy. The other issue we had to address was the table top. It was missing entirely!

Here's how it turned out!

 I used General Finishes Antique White milk paint for this piece. 

And for the table top, Nate used scrap pieces of fence boards that I stained with Minwax Special Walnut and sealed in polycrylic. I think it turned out so great with a rustic top!   

I decided to distress to bring out the great details of the table! 


As for the styling, I've been collecting things for months to do a woodland theme in my booth soon! I have been finding some really great stuff lately!!!

Like this mushroom watercolor! I freaking love it!!!! The colors are perfect!

I'm also loving these brass deer candlestick holders! 

I found some really great furniture pieces over the last few weekends that I hope I can get to soon! I can't wait!! 

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:
