One down, 4 to go!

Wahoo, I am done my end table that I was working on.  I think it came out pretty good.  I found the cutest knobs at Anthropology.  I will start with the before picture~

This was one of our end tables that we bought when we were first married.  Sentimental value, so I really wanted to use it somewhere since it is 36 almost 37 years old!

I thought I would paint it white and use it in our guest room.  After I painted it I put a wax on it.  I think I expected it to come out a little shinier.

Ta da!

I also distressed it a little as well.

Check out those knobs!

Well, what do ya think for my first piece?
If anyone has any advice on a shinny wax, I would love to know about it.

I have 4 other pieces that I want to work on, so as I finish them I will def post pictures.  I do appreciate constructive criticism.

Have a great day!
