While preparing for the Holiday Open House at BrickCity, I knew I wanted to bring this dining table in the space.
I have lots of beautiful dishes (silver plated chargers and casserole dishes, antique china) I wanted to display by setting a table.
This table was the perfect match. It has great turned wood legs that I couldn’t wait to distress. And it has two leaves that allow me to make it smaller for the booth.
I decided to go light and bright- and so painted this pretty in two coats of Picket Fence.
After painting I waxed all over with Trewax. Then I distressed with a sanding sponge.
I wanted to really bring depth to the piece and give it patina. So I mixed up some dark wax (like I did here) and rubbed it all over, especially in the curves of the legs.
I love how it took this piece from plain to gorgeous.
I love that the dark wax gives it so much life! It looks like a well-loved family piece.
In the booth I loaded her up with a lovely printed burlap runner and tons of pretty dishes!
She is ready to be a stunner!
What do you think of the table? Are you getting ready for the holidays?
This table is available at BrickCity Emporium for $150.
