In fact the basket that sits on top costs more than the
Cause it didn't. In fact it was so horrendous ( aka meaning I forgot) I didn't even get a before shot of the top, just the bottom and it looked pretty much the same on top. I am pretty sure that you get what it looked like.
After 2 coats of Old White and sanding it down I realize that the chippy look well ........ looked a little too chippy. Besides I was probably going to see more chips than I wanted to by lifting the "no food " ban.
So I applied another color ( Dried Plantain- Behr) to the entire top. I 'lightly' distressed the outer perimeter and left the center a solid color with no distressing. The final coat was a protective finish.
And although the food ban is now lifting from the family room, mom is happy with how the table turned out and the kids are happy that they have someplace to put their snacks on while watching tv.
A nice long weekend to love on the family and eat snacks while watching tv.
