A TABLE UP-CYCLE AND DIY DISTRESSING WITH INK!

Hello blog friends!
I hope you had a WONDERFUL Easter weekend!
I had a little fun up-cycling this weekend!!
It is nice enough for me to start spring cleaning…
and my newest rule is that if I don’t love it as it is and I won’t up-cycled it, I have to get rid of it.
And so that is how this little table got a paint job!
And I came up with a technique of distressing without distressing without sand paper or layers of paint.

Yep, I just distressed with ink.

and it turns out I really really love this little table now.

I am so glad that I didn’t get rid of it!

It started out like this—a garage sale find from last year that was completely neglected.

All you need to Do it Yourself is:
-Annie Sloan Chalk Paint {Graphite}
-White Ink
-craft sponge
All you do:
Paint your table and let dry.
Use your craft sponge dipped in your white ink to distress by just rubbing along edges of the furniture that you want to highlight.
{I followed these steps by adding a layer of Annie Sloan clear wax to seal the table}
Thats it!
