Rustic Trellis Top Potting Table

by Amy
Want to make a potting table look rustic even though you freshly painted it? See I did it here.
Garden trellis potting bench turned out so cute with by distressing fresh paint..
I bought this potting table a yard sale for $30.
Taped lines to make the black trellis look.
Whitewashed over the black lines to make it look old. Then used clear and dark wax to make it look worn.
I added burlap and trim to the back.
Ta-Da!!! Isn't she perrrrty!!!

    I too thought the top was tile! I just primed the potting table my hubby built me and now I'm wondering what to do with it to soften the bright white - Thank you for posting this great idea!
