Vintage End Table

A friend of mine recently brought me this table and wanted me to freshen it up...make it more modern.



She brought me this picture for inspiration, but instead of the blue peeking through, she wanted the original wood finish coming through.



I painted 2 sloppy-ish coats of white and then used denatured alcohol on a rag to distress it.











My friend hasn't seen it yet. It may need a glaze to make the details pop...but I'll let her decide!
