Rustic Farmhouse Table Using Paint and Glaze

115K Views
If I was being kind I would describe this table as having a maple finish. But the truth of the matter is it was downright filthy and was covered in grime, soot, sticky something, etc. But the price was right at $8, so I shelled out the cash and brought it home.

I had to clean and disinfect the table before I could even take a before picture! I planned to give it a rustic farmhouse look, so the first step was to sand the top smooth.

I debated whether to stain the top or paint it, but in the end I decided to paint it.

I painted the base of the table in Duck Egg Blue and used 220-grit sandpaper to distress the paint.

For the top I applied a thin coat of Old White to get a translucent finish.

Then I applied an uneven coat of a contrasting color, Coco, to add some dimension to the overall finish. Next I hand sanded the top to diminish the contrast and blend the colors.

I applied a coat of soft clear wax and then applied decorative glaze. This step is a little scary at first!

I wiped off the glaze until I got the look I wanted. The glaze is very easy to work with, especially over a waxed finish.

Now the table is clean and fresh, but it still has a time worn look! The table has a smaller footprint which makes it perfect for small spaces. The drop leaves can be extended when extra space is required. I'm currently searching for some chairs to pair with the table.

Despite using multiple colors, it still has a neutral color scheme.
