I first saw this cute little vintage end table when the Music Man texted a photo to me. He found it at an estate sale while we were up at the Roses and Rust Vintage Market. It was in good condition, very solid, but I knew it would look better with a coat of Seattle Mist.
I cleaned off the cobwebs and gave it one coat of CeCe Caldwell Seattle Mist. It’s my new favorite color! lol… If you’ve been reading my posts you’ll know that I change favorite colors quite frequently. Read this… and this… and this… and then follow my Pinterest painting board.

The photo above shows what it looked like after just one coat of Seattle Mist. I wanted a little bit of a distressed look so I didn’t give it a thick coat. I let it dry completely and sanded it with 320 grit sandpaper, putting a little more pressure on corners and edges. Then I got out the wax. Every time I wax it gets a little easier!
The finish on this is the smoothest I’ve done so far! Like everything else, the more I practice the better it gets. So if you’re just starting out painting, let me encourage you to just buy or find some small pieces of old furniture and paint!
‘Til the next project,
