Patio Table Redo

I found this little outdoor table recently at the local thrift shop. She'd seen better days for sure, but for $3.99 + 40% off, I couldn't pass it up. We needed another end table for our backyard patio anyway!

I sanded it down so that the nasty stain disappeared. Then haphazzardly brushed on a few layers of Cabot Semi-Solid stain in the color "shale"...which is a gray. I distressed it and decided it needed a little somethin' somethin'. So I initialed the table. Glazed with fruitwood stain, and here she sits today!

This was one of my easiest projects! Enjoy!
