Cottage End Tables

I scored these two awesome tables at the auction.  I really liked the style of the tables & was so glad I won them.  I could picture these on either side of a bed in a great chippy white finish.  It is hard to tell from the before picture but the finish was in really rough shape.   I had just ordered CeCe Caldwell's new paint & was dying to try it out.  So these tables got one good coat of Simply White & dried faster than I have ever seen any paint dry!  I did a heavier distressing on these than I normally do but it was the vision I saw in my head!  I gave them a good coat of wax and buffed then with 3M finishing pads.  Once you use these, I don't think you will go back to anything else!  I couldn't believe how smooth they made the finish with have the arm work!  Now my arms won't be so sore buff! :)  I fell in love with this paint!  I am now the North Georgia retailer for the paint.  Please let me know if you want to try it too!  I think you will love it!







I really wanted to keep these once they were done, they would look great in my guest bedroom I am redoing!  But I can't keep everything & I bought these to sell, so off they went to my booth at City Antiques.  They measure 16"W x 16"D x 29"H.
