Kitchen Table Reveal

So here is my kitchen table before, during and afters.  I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.  I still need to put a coat of sealer on it, but that won't happen until next week probably.  But here she is in all her glory!  I sanded, primed, painted, distressed the crap out of it, and glazed.

BEFORE
This was after I had sanded the top a little bit

AFTER





 I am a horrible picture taker and these pictures were really giving me trouble.  But I hope you get the idea.  It's very scuffed up, which is how I like my furniture.  With 2 kids and 2 dogs, it's bound to happen sooner or later anyway, so why not beat them to the punch.  Then the black glaze adds that antique look which I love even more.

Anyway, chairs will be coming soon.  I'm out of town this weekend, so I won't get much accomplished on the home front.  Hopefully can start them sometime next week.
