Game Table

I had soo much fun with this set!! I loved what I had to work with...it's an antique set with cane-backed chairs and a cute, square plank table that extends.



I wanted a whitewashed or really distressed look for it.

I began with a thin coat of creamy white paint. I then scrubbed the whole thing with steel wool. I love the look steel wool gives, although I would recommend wearing gloves if you're gonna try it...I have lots of little silver splinters! I then mixed up a light blue-grey and painted some of the planks. A little heavy distressing, and it was finished!









I went pretty beachy with it, which may mean no one in Colorado will want to buy it...if that's the case, it will be happy in my home!
You can see all the details here!
