The base of the table was in good shape, however, the top not so much! It definitely needed some love.
Tilt Top Table Makeover
It's amazing how a little paint can completely transform a piece of furniture. And, this tilt top table is no exception.
I painted the table with 2 coats of the color, Spanish Moss, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
I've had this Re*design With Prima transfer for quite sometime waiting for the perfect project to use it on, and this was it.
The transfer came in 4 sections so I carefully placed them & taped them down, then rubbed them on.
I went over the entire table with Dixie Belle's clear wax. Adding clear wax first makes it easier to control the darker wax colors.
Then I added black wax to the detailed areas, then wiped it back with a rag.
What a difference! From drab & dated to darling!
I made sure that when the table was tilted, that the design would be in the proper direction.
When tilted, the table is like a work of art.
