My first chalk paint project

I finally got around to buying Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to redo some furniture that I am going to sell in a “parking lot sale” next week. 

Here is the first table I did.


Table 1


Table 3

Table 2

I painted it with Chateau Grey on the top and legs and Country Grey on the front and sides.   I have got to say that this is the easiest painting I have done (and I’ve done a lot).  I love the fact that I didn’t have a lot of preliminary work to do.   I finished the piece with dark wax – probably the hardest part of the project!  

I have four more pieces I am working on for the sale which I’ll share later.  One of them is turning out really cool – it’s was an old stereo cabinet in its former life and now it will be a great storage/console table.

You did a nice job. I love the shape of this piece.
