Thrifted Farm Table Makeover

344,554 Views
I found this 90's honey pine table at my local Goodwill for just $30. I loved the size and the shape, but the orange color? Not so much. And, the top had been beaten to a pulp in an apparent attempt to "distress" it. This before photo shows how the table looked after I had filled some of the more major distressing on the top.

Given the amount of distressing, this table was never going to have a perfectly smooth finish. So, I decided to go with a lightly distressed look for the makeover. Here it is all finished in my kitchen/dining room.

After filling the deep imperfections, I sanded the entire table and gave it a good scrubbing. There was also quite a bit of crud on it. I then primed and painted it with General Finishes antique white milk paint.

After painting, I lightly distressed the areas where it would naturally have become worn over time. I then sealed it with several coats of General Finishes High Performance top coat in flat.

As a finishing touch, I added a new knob to the pretty drawer on the end. For more details and photos, I would love for you to check out my blog.

    Since I live with two very busy grandboys, I probably wouldn't have to do the distressing myself. ;)
