Penny Tiled Table




                    


I got this plain white table at an estate sale.  It was the last day and the house was practically empty.
This sturdy table was covered with books with contact paper over the top half.  I snagged it up.
I had thought about tiling the top because it was particle board and ugly, but then I remembered something i had pinned on Pinterest.

I added a ledge to the top of the table.  
I then began gluing each penny down with gorilla glue.  It only takes small drop. 
I first painted my table "teal ocean" by benjamin moore using my chalkpaint recipe and then
with a chocolate brown diy chalkpaint.


After I glued all the pennies, I followed the directions on super glaze to cover them.
It is super easy to use.


I LOVE how this turned out.  Its at our store in Wichita, KS called 
Absolute Vintage Boutique.  I think it will make a great kitchen island or mini bar.

I distressed the entire thing.  I left the shelf tops "teal ocean".
I then used Annie Sloan dark wax and clear.

of time.  I had planned to do that all week, but we turned the store upside down and redid EVERTHING.

Fresh Paint





Its just amazing what paint can do.  I got the plain white cabinet at a yard sale.
I used some paint pod samples that I got for 99cents each to spice up this cabinet.
I used a little a lot of distressing and used some Annie Sloan Dark and Clear Wax.
I painted the hinges and added some new hardware knobs. 
 I love how beachy, and rustic it turned out.
I took it up to Absolute Vintage Boutique, our store, and it sold in a day.
