Mint Table

You all know how much I love the color Mint! I am so excited for my first piece of mint furniture. I am getting ready to move and trying to find cheap furniture to put in my house.  My mom got this from a garage sell years ago for $6.  She never used it so I snatched it up. 

I did a quick sanding job with my new electric sander.  I had no idea how much I needed to sand.  If anyone has any tips I would love to hear them! I then put a coat of Krylon primer on.  This beautiful mint color is Mint Gala by Valspar. I just used a regular old brush but I would have loved to try one of those machines that spray the paint like spray paint.  I am going to be hitting up my brother in law for the next project.

I sanded the edges again where I wanted to distress and added a Walnut stain I picked up from Walmart. 

 Just wipe of any of the stain you don't want with a rag. After everything was dry I sprayed a coat of polyurethane to protect my new table. 

I bought a new know from Hobby Lobby and Waaaa Laaa here she is!

Definitely not professional but I am pleased with my first furniture makeover.
