Another Successful Project

My first big project that isn't working on furniture for myself! I have a friend of the family who is brave enough to let me take hold of her furniture and transform it into something amazing! She was going to get rid of it anyway and buy new so if I screwed up royally she wasn't really out anything! haha

Here is what I started out with an old fashion end table


I stripped the stain off...my first time stripping! ;)


And here is the finished product!

And the other one

Here is a close up of the edges.
I know it's kind of hard to tell in the other photos but I was going for the antique look.

This whole project was about learning new techniques. In my other projects I used a hand sander and black paint. So this was a fun change!
