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.
