Wait & See

Hum...liking the look after applying a bit of furniture wax!


Walking away, waiting to see how it dries...but you can hardly go wrong on a table that is meant to look like its had a long life already.

Now I'm off to pick up a few supplies for a new DIY tutorial...more on that later this week.

Happy Monday!

  2. It looks amazing with the wax. The gray-brown is such a nice change from the usual dining table.

  3. I have an old barn board top table in my kitchen that I waxed also. I found it looked great but evertime it had something hot on it or it got wet, it left huge white rings that were very difficult to remove. I have now oiled it (I used the Ikea oil meant for wooden butcher block counters which is mineral oil I believe, and it is much better. No more worries about rings from glasses etc.

  4. I love this table and what you are doing with it. Would you mind sharing what online store you bought it from? I love online shopping and I'm always on the hunt for new stores.

  7. Love that greyed, washed look! Am thinking I am going to have to go that route with a few of my darker wood pieces.

  22. This is wonderful! I have a cousin that specializes in the "shabby chic" decor, and I can totally see this going in her house! I love it, as well. You would definitely have to have it on the right carpet or hardwood floors in order for it to look right, though.
