Cream Coffee Table, Aged, Distressed

December 2, 2017

This coffee table was your typical red mahogany type of wood.  I loved it though because of all the carvings and curves.  These make the best furniture pieces to work on because those areas are great for distressing.  

 

I first cleaned this and then gave it a quick light sanding.  Then it got shellac, 2 coats.

Then I painted 2 coats of Old Ochre. 

I sanded in between the coats to get smoothness. 

The last sanding I sanded extra in all the areas that I wanted distressed.

Then it was all sealed with wax.  One coat of clear wax, and then one coat of dark wax.  When you wax a large surface with any of the dark waxes (dark wax, black wax) you want to make sure you are going in long, even strokes.  Work in a long section, wipe off excess, keep going in sections.   

 

Make sure you let your furniture pieces cure before using them.  Same with cabinets.
