My friends are amazing

Everyone likes, or I assume they do, a refinished product. My crafty little friend has taken a side table that she had and decided to refinish it to give it a rustic shabby look.
What she did to get this look was: she sanded it down to remove any finish that was already on it and then  painted 2 coats of antique white flat finish. After that was dry she painted one coat of turquoise flat finish (let it dry) and then proceeded to sand it again by hand to distress spots that she wanted to have a more rustic look. To finish off the product she used a sponge brush to add Valspar Antiquing Glaze in small areas and then wiped it clean with an old t-shirt immediately. Depending on how dark you want the spots, you can re-apply. Thanks for sharing this, Shelly! 
Happy Refinishing!
