The farmhouse table is finished and I’m so happy with how it turned out!
If you remember, it was painted brown. I could see some original green paint showing through and I was hoping to reveal that through some chippy Farmhouse White MMS Milk Paint and that is exactly what happened.

Now, the table was distressed and ready for a finish. I chose Tough Coat, since that is our best finish for sealing in chippiness, so the paint doesn’t continue to flake.
Here is a tutorial showing how I sealed the table base…
This table was a great piece and I’m glad I was able to give it a fresh look while retaining the aged charm.
I was planning on replacing the drawer pull, but I sort of liked the homemade wire one and decided to keep it. I did turn it over, though, because it always looked upside-down to me! It’s nothing fancy, but it really is a pretty smart hack.
Now that the weather is getting nicer, I have a few more furniture pieces to work on and I’ll share those transformations as well…
