Make sure to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss any!Hey guys!I wanted to show you guys the next step in my dining room overhaul.  I spent the last few days revamping the dining room furniture.  Here is how I did my table…You guys remember the before??The top of the table was stained wood but it had a red cast to it that I was a bit “over”.  And, I was ready to brighten her legs up too!I did lightly sand the top of the table.  There are a few scratches on it and I thought better safe than sorry!I used a 120 grit sandpaper to lightly go over the top.  I sanded just a bit harder over my scratches.During this process I also found some lovelies that my sweet kids left for me….I found this primer back when I was repainting my laundry room cabinets and fell in LOVE.   It has never let me down and seems to stick to just about anything.  I only used one coat on the top of the table.  I decided to not put any on the legs because they were already painted.Primed and ready…I applied both my primer and paint using the same roller.  I swear by these things, and I promise once you use them you will not go back.  They are Whizz Roller Systems.I get mine at Lowe’s and they come with a small 4″ roller.  Love them.The paint color I went with is a Dutch Boy color called Clam Island.  I didn’t love the name of the color but it matched my spray paint perfect

If you are on a tight budget, but still want to own fabulous and unique furniture, DIY projects are definitely the way to go. This DIY Distressed Table was cheap and relatively easy, but required a lot of my time and hard work. The best part about this DIY in particular is that it cost me barely anything.

Next was the fun part. We wanted to go for a distressed, antique look, so I took an old candle and rubbed it along some of the edges where I wanted the original wood to show through the paint. Paint does not easily cover wax, and the wax also protected the stain of the wood underneath. After going around the entire table, carefully planning out where it would be distressed, we painted the entire thing an off-white to go with the old world feel.

Assemble Table While the top is drying, measure the thickest portion. Add 1/16” to this measurement and mark a horizontal line with a framing square across the tops of the table legs. This line marks the gutter structure mounting depth. Legs will protrude 1/16” above the plane of the tabletop. Ask a helper to hold the leg tight to the inside corner of the gutter structure with the mark at the top of the gutter. Drive at least two wood screws through the inside face of the gutter into the sides of the leg. Attach all four legs and set the top on the base with equal overhang on all sides. Carefully trace the leg tops on the bottom side of the planks and then flip it over onto a work surface. Drill a 1/2” hole with each square mark near the line but not touching it. Using a jigsaw, carefully cut out each square. Because leg tops will nest snuggly in these squares, be sure cuts are slightly undersized. Flip the top back over and attempt to set it on the base. Using a flat wood file and chisel, remove small amounts of material as needed. Once the top nestles down on the gutter structure without excess force, run a small bead of wood glue on the top edges of the gutter, reposition the top and shoot 15-gauge finish nails through the inside edge of the gutter into the bottom of the tabletop. Fill in small gaps between the leg top and table planks with wood filler or small wood shims.

In our grandmothers’ day, if a piece of furniture or a picture frame was distressed, it meant it had been around for generations and most of the paint had worn off in areas that had been rubbed by hands or nicked by being moved too many times. Today, the distressed look is sought-after, and it can add character and style to many types of decor.
