Anyone that knows me is aware that I love to bargain hunt. My favorite place to shop for furniture is on Craigslist. I have been looking for a square coffee table for quite some time and when I came across this one for $60, I couldn’t pass it up.
The only problem I had with it was the finish. Most of our furniture is dark wood, and our couch is dark brown leather, so the orange-y color wasn’t really doing it for me. My MIL turned me on to her technique – putting wax directly over wood. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but I have to say I love the results. Here is the table after I brushed on a coat of the wax on the edges and sides of the table.
And here it is finished 🙂 I LOVE how it turned out. It looks perfectly imperfect with a little touch of rustic farmhouse ❤ I finished the entire table in two days and didn’t have to sand anything. I would say that is a win!
Until next time….cheers 😉
