Using the vintage décor brush, apply 2 coats of paint to completely cover the end table in vintage décor paint.
Sand the edges of the tabletop and legs to reveal the wood underneath.
With a clean disposable cloth, gently apply small amounts of vintage décor antique wax to the sanded edges in loose streaks. (Tip: dampen the cloth to ease the application.)
Go back over the edges with a light sanding, only to lighten the color of the antique wax, but not entirely remove. This will create your "vintage" weathered look.
