Table Makeover

Here's what I did to redo this table:

I apologize for not posting for the past few days, but I was sick this weekend and our internet went out and it just got fixed, so I can post again! I chalk painted a table that we got for $10! 

$10 Table
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen and Duck Egg
Annie Sloan Dark Wax and Clear Wax
Annie Sloan Wax Brush 
Paint Brush

 Step 1: I painted the Duck Egg (Blue) all over the table.
Step 2: I painted then topped it with French Linen by dry brushing it.
  Step 3: I used fine sandpaper to give it a more distressed look because I really like for the original surface to show through.
Step 4: (optional) I dabbed the dark wax on to help it.
Step 5: I used a soft cloth aka a sock to rub in the dark wax.
 Step 6: I coated it with the clear wax, and used my soft cloth again to rub it in.
If you don't use the dark wax, then make sure that you still use the clear wax because you need to make sure that it is all sealed. 
My dogs wanted to be in the pictures!
