Here is a side view of one of the tables after I reassembled them. This allowed me to see how the distressing looked. I touched up what I felt needed a little more distressing before adding the poly.
Here is a front view of one of the tables. I like to check pieces from every angle so that I am sure the distressing looks right. You never know what angle it will be setting in the home, and want to make sure it looks great from any angle.Poly and done! Notice how the color looks different depending on the lighting? *sigh* I have to take pictures in different lighting.
I actually used wipe on poly for these. Usually I con my husband into doing regular poly (I have him convinced that I can’t do it right 🤣). I prefer poly over wax on pieces that will see heavier use. I love how these turned out! As did the lovely lady that purchased them.
This is a picture from the lovely lady that purchased the end tables. She wanted them to add a pop of color in her guest room. Lovely!
