Chic Console Table

Hubby needed a TV Console Table for his man cave so he picked up this old unit from an auction. It was well used but the wood was solid and the finish just needed a little TLC. I thought it needed a touch of modern and a bit of up lifting.

Hubby sanded down the top and stained it with a dark Varathane Espresso colour. The wood grain came through so nicely that we decided not to paint over top and just wax it so the details would show through.

The rest of the piece was painted in Charcoal Americana Decor paint I picked up at my local Micheal’s store. I did enjoy woking with this paint. It covered well and all I needed was a first coat and a second coat diluted with water. I then distressed and sanded a tiny little bit and wax a clear coat of ASCP soft wax, applied a little bit of dark wax then finished with a last coat of clear.

This will really go well in his man-cave. If you are interested in this piece or if you have a project in mind, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll be glad to offer my services. 🙂
