Rustic side table

Could you say no to this little side table?

We found it while driving up to look at another venue for our wedding next year. Across the street from the location was a Thrift store and we just had to stop and go in. Strolling around I stumbled across this little guy. It was marked at $12.91 and before anybody could even think about taking it home, we carried it to the cash register.
It has such a nice farm house style.

I sanded and painted it with my favorite of all time color, Heritage Park from Behr.


After it was dry I used Martha Stewart's black coffee glaze and wiped it all over the surface.  
Let it dry for a couple minutes then wiped it off so that it came out with that old rustic beautiful  look.

 When it was all done, I thought it needed something else. I used chalkboard paint for the top to give it some more charm.

And here is the before and after.

 Now it is on craigslist waiting for a new home!
