Cozy litte nesters

I bought these 3 nesting tables BB (before blogging!) with the hopes that I would someday be able to show them to the world. I didn't know enough to take step-by-step pictures but I did snap a few shots along the way.

Here is a side view after I had already stripped the top. I had also already spray painted the little feet with ORB paint. Now imagine an ugly greenish-colored wood top and mutliply it by 3 and you will know what the set looked like!

I filled holes, sanded uneven areas and stained the tops with Minwax dark walnut.

There are no pictures of the next step but I finished the tops with a poly and after that had dried I taped the tops off with newspaper and painter's tape and then spray painted the legs and aprons white. I don' remember the exact brand or color but it was most likely Heirloom White. After some distressing and glazing they were posted on Craigslist.

I'm working on an awesome antique wardrobe for my Daughter's room that I hope to have finished today so stay tuned!
