Chippy Distressed Side Table

So…here’s a project that my husband volunteered to help with. I thought “Hmmm, what could I have him do?  Oh I know, this piece is in perfect condition so I’ll just have him sand down the top and then he can stain it with dark walnut.  The legs are already a pretty color so I really don’t need to do anything with them.  It will be gorgeous!”  Skip ahead a few minutes and my husband re-appears announcing that he has finished sanding but got a little carried away with the sander.  Once he applied the stain, we knew that this little side table was going on an adventure, never to return in the same condition.  (Laughing Out Loud)  After layer upon layer of dark walnut stain and paint; the result is a very rustic, chippy and beautiful side table!  I gave it over-the-top personality & character with creamy yellow and severely distressing it on purpose!!!  Thanks Honey for all your help!  I actually think I like it better than what we had originally planned.  It’s simply irresistible and so are you!
