Do you think idoing a white wash with ASCP old white on top would be best option to lighten it up or using white wax or do I need to just resand it down again and start over with a lighter wood stain color?

My boyfriend has a beautiful solid wood kitchen table well not beautiful right now… that I really want to redo. It was completely beat up in his college days and has hundreds of similar small dents from dice being thrown high in the air and landing on the table.
The top is disgusting from years of beer being spilled and never cleaned up boys…ugh. I want to sand it down to the beautiful wood hiding underneath and paint the the farmhouse style legs with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint not sure what color yet. But there are two things that I am worried about: 1 The wood is very light colored lighter than the wood you used here , so putting white wax on it might make it too light and not look good. Although, I love the look of your desk top here. Do you think I could stain the top a little darker and then put the white wax over it to get a more drift wood kinda look?

I like all These things. Somebody told me to get a special effect waxing it with a black wax. Hi there Johanna! When you apply wax, whether using black wax or clear wax your graphite will get darker where the wax is applied. This is normal. And the trick to getting a nice even finish and sheen is to apply the wax very thin. A little goes a long way. When you buff it off, you should be feeling no drag on your cloth.
