Antique Drum Table in Florence

My husband picked up this lovely little table at a local estate sale.  I kind of have a "thing" for drum tables.  This little lady had great details!

She had good bones, but her finish was a little worse for wear.  The apron was really dry and had chipped in a few spots and there were water rings on the top.
I sanded and stained the top in Minwax Dark Walnut.  One of my favorite stains!  Then put two coats of wipe-on poly to seal it.  The base of the table received two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ in Florence.  I lightly distressed and finished it with clear and dark waxes.

And another before and after picture!

I'm really loving the color Florence lately.  Can you see this color in your house?
