My first step was to sand it and then I sprayed it with Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze . I love this color and knew it would provide me with a bright base upon which to apply my favorite wax finish.
Below is the table after two coats of Blue Ocean Breeze. I also lined the petite center drawer with scrapbook paper as shown below.
I then took out my trusty, 'go to' Howard Citrus Shield Premium Paste Wax in Golden Oak and applied it generously in a circular motion over the entire piece.
After 10 minutes, I began buffing and buffing some more, leaving just enough to achieve the distressed look I was hoping for. The faux crystal knobs were finds from Michaels dollar bins...score!!!
It is now the perfect bedside table in my daughter's room and I'm loving it against the lavendar striped walls.
Let me know what you think....
