Side Table Painted and Stained

I attempted sanding and staining a side table to darken it.  It didn’t work so I just said oh well and kept going with it.  I used some chalkpaint in Versailles and added a little Graphite to it.  Did some quick distressing, used a light brown Briwax and called it good.


I wish I loved painting, but I don’t.  I like things redone so I do it.  If I loved painting then that ugly trim would be painted and if I knew how to use a saw then I would add molding where that horrible carpet goes up the wall.  I wonder if I can eventually talk my husband into helping me?  Don’t ya hate when you have to involve your husband?


My son loves this table that was my husband’s before we married.  He lifts the side up and puts his drink, IPod, snack, etc on it. 


I got a new lamp shade.  I will post about that soon.

Here’s a little before pic for ya.
