New Craft Table

Remember the 3 tables that I got off of Craigslist...well I finished my craft table YAY!!!

Remember my before picture

My first step was to clean this baby up, it was a mess UGH!! I gave the table a few good sandings, this took me forever. I decided I wanted to stain the top and paint the rest a light blue color. So I stained the top with a Minwax stain called Early American 230. I primed the rest of the table and painted it with a light blue that I mixed myself. I am still not sure if I want to distress it or leave it???  Once I make my decision I am going to finish with some poly!! I am going to make this into my craft and homework table, can't wait to get all my stuff organized...thats a whole new project HAHA!!
