Distressed Garden Table/Desk

On August 25, 2011 By

This is a sweet little garden table/desk that we just finished refinishing. The original green base was so great, we left that but just added a little distressing to match the top. The puke peach paint was stripped off to reveal a nice grained wood – which we then gave a whitewashed look […]
