Grain sack inspired Coffee Table Makeover!

 Good Morning my Beauties.....Its been a LOOONG cold Michigan winter,
and we are off enjoying a nice warm vacation in Florida..
So I am hitting REPLAY on this old Makeover
for you guys while I recharge my SOLAR batteries in the sun...:)

Good Morning My BEAUTIES!
I hope the day finds you well!
I am freaking out a bit as I was just notified by the local media to be on
the morning show. I am not gonna lie..I am freaking out..I am very much a behind the scenes
kind of person, so this is one more step of coming out of my "comfort zone" and being open (even though I am scared crapless) to push myself to do new things...WISH ME LUCK!!!

But before all that, I have been working on furniture like a fiend..
Trying like a squirrel storing its nuts for winter to create some inventory
for the upcoming cold winter so I don't have to paint so much in the freezing cold .
I bought this table for 8 bucks at a local thrift store. It was structurally in great condition
but the top was really scraped and water marked.

I started by painting the top white and the legs in CE CE CALDWELL's Traverse city cherry.
I was inspired by my FARM FRESH table makeover that you can see HERE

after a couple coats of each color and waxing and buffing, I used tape to mark off two lines to
mimic a grain sack.

I used my crimson acrylic paint for that. When it was dry, I distressed and waxed it again and buffed it.
I love how it turned out. 
It looks like it has been sitting around an old farm house forever.

It was old..but now it looks really old, and I LOVE that!
I hope you enjoyed this latest furniture makeover and don't forget to link up to the LINK PARTY
going on until Monday!
You can link up your projects HERE
Until next time...
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
