Farm Table and Chair Updo

This is an old farm table that was hand made and 4 antique chairs.
I've had inspiration for a long time to paint this in Annie Sloan Provence with heavy distressing and java gel on top of the table. The second photo is my inspiration picture.

    Hi Kris!!!! Do you know the base color that was used in the photo that you used as your inspiration? I would also like to get the same look, I have the ASCP Provence and Java Gel for the top but need to know the color and brand of the base showing through after distressing. Thanks sooo much!!!

    i like your version better than the inspiration piece....the inspiration piece has too much distressing for my taste, where yours is just right! great job!
