Oak Coffee Table

This was one of those pieces that I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it.  I found it on Craigslist in early June and emailed and made an offer.  The seller said she wanted to wait awhile to see if she could get what she was asking.  After we got back from our vacation in Mid JULY, I emailed her again and this time she accepted my offer : ).  It was your typical golden oak coffee table.  I sanded down the top and stained it with Minwax "Dark Walnut".  I painted the base of the table with Annie Sloan "Graphite".  I then used both the Annie Sloan clear and dark waxes and replaced the knob with a mercury glass knob from Anthropologie.
