Nesting Tables

Busy, busy, busy.  I'm getting my load ready for Kane County.  Thought I'd quickly show you what I did with the nesting tables you got a peek at several posts back.



The before.



Someone had spray painted them gold.  I gave them a white base, and a grey top. After that, I added a rose design, which you can find the tutorial for  HERE.  I just used a light touch for a faded look.



I alternated brown, and clear wax to dirty them up a little, and to finish them off.









I have an estate sale to hit tomorrow.  I'll try to share as much as I can.  See ya soon.

I have a set of nesting tables very similar to yours. I'm not using them at the moment, but I love the idea of repainting them like you did. I need a place to put them first though. ha! Yours turned out very pretty and unique, as always.
