Before and After Turquoise Table

Hang onto your hats!
I managed to get alot done in the month leading up to our Graduation Party.

Here is the table I painted.

Before
(sitting in the middle of the kitchen on the way to the back porch to be painted!)


And a couple of shots with the table still in the family room......




And here are the "After" photos....




I used a couple of coats of  Valspar "Swim" in semi-gloss.  Then I distressed the table with sandpaper and stained the entire table and wiped the stain off, immediately, to give the color some depth. 

I am very happy with how it turned out!
