Ugly Dirty Insanely Heavy Aqua Vintage Table Makeover

A friend of mine was giving this away, and when I came to pick it up I could see why. The table was scratched, absolutely filthy (which took forever to clean because of the carving) and it weighed a thousand pounds. It took three people just to get it in the car! Once it was cleaned up I painted it with aqua DIY chalkpaint, glazed it with a brown paint mixture, shined up the hardware, and coated it in clear wax. I might be keeping this bad boy simply for the fact that no one will be able to lift it out of here! I think this aqua table looks pretty good right where it is!
