Yup, not bad..but boring and bla and standard Ikea and boring and bla
I wanted something bright and bold and colorful, because well, I always want something bright and bold and colorful..I went with a bright yellow, which actually then turned into too bright and bold for my living room...I was going to glaze it with walnut oil and I started too as per my original plan, but it just looked dirty to me. So, I did a white-wash-dry-brush-thing over all of it and thought that was just perfect!
With flash, had to be done..but yikes..seriously, thats bright...this pic shows off more of the newly stripped and re-stained dark walnut top thats very barn-wood-esque
This bad boy was dinged and scratched and dented perfectly the last 6 years we;ve had it...but sadly, when I stripped and sanded it down, I lost them all....so out came my poker thing and my chains and my hammer and I was able to recreate the worn-with-love-marks it had before.
You know I love shabby...like just came out from the barn that its been in for 78 years kinda shabby
So, I was right! and, The Mister was right! and for right now, we both love our new-and-practical coffee table.
