New Life for Nesting Tables

I picked these tables from a friends grandmothers house they were antique gold and green, need I say ugly ugly ugly I was not sure I even wanted them, but I took them anyways thinking I will try to make something of them and if it fails I could throw them away.

So I got to work and painted them CECE Caldwells Parchment and took a sandpaper block to them to distress them, I used a clear wax by Maison Blanche and touched the edges with Annie Sloan warm gilding wax.  I finished them with a three coats of Dixie Bell Gator Hide so that they will be waterproof on the top in case company puts a glass or plate on them.  They turned out terrific and now belong to my daughter.

I love nesting tables, you don’t see them around often but they are really great for company.
