Dining Room table makeover

While I was at Sue's house working on her desk. You can see all about it HERE. We decided to give her dining room table a makeover.
The top of the table was damage by some water stains and some fork marks.

This is the table before:

We pointed at it with our paint brushes and said: Bippity Boppity Boo!!!
Unfortunately nothing happened, so we got to work!
We sanded the top to the bare wood, and applied a coat of dark wax and a coat of clear wax over the dark one for extra protection.

We painted the apron and legs ASCP Old White and applied a coat of clear wax and a coat of dark wax over the clear one.

I think we got some pretty Bippity Boppity Boo at the end of the process!! Here it is!

Sue is in the hunt for new Linen chairs to complete her dining room. I think the table came out fantastic. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!!
