Beachy Subway gets a matching table!!

Behold the throw-away table my sister picked up off the street! At first I said, "nah, what the heck am I going to make with this clunky thing??" But she brought it over anyway. 
I'm really into the beachy subway art theme so I thought why not try it on this table?
It's not going to cost anything but my time. 

Here ya go! Kinda glad I gave it a shot!

Here is the Art piece I had done first.

As usual, I sand and sand. I wanted this down to the
bare wood so I could restain it a darker color. When I
distress the paint, I want the dark wood to show through.

 After staining, I painted it with ASCP in Pure white and some kind of blue paint I had laying around. All of that gets sanded and distressed until I like what I see.

Forgot to take a pic of the 
stenciling process. Some letters
were painted with the stenciling in place, others were penciled
in and then hand painted afterward.  I drew the shells and 
starfish and painted those. 

Everything was sanded again and then given a few coats of clear paste wax.  
                                                          Cobalt glass starfish knob!

This one is looking for a home!! I already have a  huge ottoman that goes in this spot!
