We started by stripping the paint off of the top. I tried a new product (shown below) that is more environmentally friendly and doesn't strip your skin, cause birth defects, burn your nose hairs... the list goes on and on... Although it is better for you and the environment, it takes a little more elbow grease than the bad stuff!
I scrubbed and scrubbed.... (and eventually tried to sand it off - AGAIN!) Yes... I'm inside my living room sanding! It was the hottest day that Charlotte has seen this summer and I thought I would have a heat stroke! (at least I wasn't burning my nose hairs!?!?!)
I painted the table a soft white and left the top bare.
I stained the top and added a couple coats of Polycrylic to give it a classic look. I love that you can still see some of the pink through the distressing, but it's not as overwhelming as it once was.
So.... What do you think? To pink or not to pink?? Leave a comment about some of your pink projects (or just tell me how you feel about pink!)!
