Living Room Furniture (Before and After)

I found these Broyhill tables on Craigslist for a good deal and had to snatch them up. I got a new sander as an early Christmas present, so I thought it would be fun to test it out on my new furniture.  I decided to prime everything except for the top with white spray paint primer.  After priming, I sanded the top surfaces down completely until I had bare wood.  After sanding the top, I got Walnut Miniwax stain and applied over the top of each piece.  Using an old T-shirt, I wiped on about 3 coats, letting each coat dry about 15 minutes in between.  I then painted the bottom using an off white color.  After painting and letting it dry about 30 minutes, i put a thin layer of the dark walnut stain over the top, and wiped off immediately to give the tables an antiqued look.  I then did a little distressing, and finished it all off with some polycrylic. 

This is how they looked before...

And this is how they looked after

Such a fun project!
