Last summer I fould a great deal on a set of Mission Style end tables and coffee table at a yard sale, I was so excited because I've always liked the look of this style. They were banged up in several spots so I knew I'd need to refinish them. I finally decided to bring them in and start working on them.
Here's the before of one of the end tables...
I love the brushed on, distressed type look on furniture. So I took a can of regular wall paint that's a sky blue color and lightly brushed it on.
Next , after a lot of debating with myself, I decided to do the top solid chocolate brown. Again just a can of regular house paint that I had laying around. So I used a foam brush and did two coats.
This pic is after the first coat...
Here it is finished!!
All that's left is a coat or two of clear satin finish polyurethane.
Now on to the other end table then coffee table!
