We found this wooden end table at a local thrift store and it looked like a great candidate for a painted furniture makeover. The style of the cabinet almost resembled shiplap and we knew it could transform the style into a rustic farmhouse end table with a new refinished paint job.
We decided to try out a type of paint finish that resembles a Restoration Hardware finish. Here are the supplies we used for this project

To start out we lightly sanded the wood down with 60 Grit Sandpaper. Then went over it to smooth it out with 3M Final Stripping Pads. We love to use these to smooth out the finish. Then we wiped the piece clean with a rag.
Once that had dried we used Valspar Limewash Glaze mixed 2:1 with Floetrol. The Floetrol helps to extend the drying time of the paint. Using a brush we brushed on a light layer of the glaze. Then went back and smoothed out the glaze until we liked the way it looked.
Once the piece had dried we replaced the old ugly knobs with some really cute nickel bin pulls. This really was the step that gave the end table a rustic farmhouse look.
