Furniture Before and Afters- Round Table and Desk

Just posting today to share some more

painted furniture ideas!

So here are some before and afters.

Pin It!
You might remember the other striped table top

that I painted:

You can find all of the details here.

So, this little round table had much the same treatment.

Paint stripper for the top.

Paint and Stain together for stripes.

Soften and blend the whole look with stain and paint mix.

Then put semi-gloss polyurethane to make the colors

deep and rich.

Then Tyler brought an awesome desk that his friend built.

Tyler found the look he wanted at Pottery Barn.

He liked both the stained and painted options,

so he decided to combine them.

I applied a wood conditioner to the bare wood.

Then I stained the entire piece in English Chestnut

and painted the base in semi-gloss black.

After sanding the base edges, I reapplied the stain to the those areas.

If you're like me,

you have a pinterest file full of painted furniture ideas.

So these are just some more to add to that : )
