Because the old finish was really chippy, I grabbed some 220 grit sandpaper and sanded the tops and shelves of each of the tables to smooth out the uneven finish.
I just wanted to erase and blend the edges of the chippy finish so we would get a smooth finish.
Once everything was wiped down with a damp rag I painted on the beautiful warm gray paint known as Rocky Mountain. It only took light coats to get complete coverage!
The edges all received a light distressing with some more 220 grit sandpaper. To give the end tables a little bit more of a sheen, as well as added durability, I sealed them with a poly topcoat.
