Beach Cottage End Table

3 Hours
I purchased the end table at a local Goodwill. It had good bones, but lots of dings and scratches. Since I was heading to the beach in a couple of weeks I wanted to really get in the beach mood. I wanted more vibrant colors than blue, white, tan, so I chose yellow, white, and teal. I distressed it and added a dark wax. I'm very pleased with the end result.
Close up of colors. I put the original hardware back on the drawer after dry brushing some of the teal color on to give it an aged worn look.
This was during the painting process and before I added final coats of paint, wax, and distressing.
Top of table. Again, I wanted it to have a really worn out look. I wanted the underlying colors to show, as well as some of the wood stain.
I love the details on the legs, the fact that it has a drawer to store remotes. Now I'm looking for a lamp to redo to match the colors and style.
I used sample paints from Home Depot for the white and yellow colors. The teal is from Plaster Paints.
