An old, beat up coffee table I picked up for $5. A little love in the way of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint & Minwax PolyShades made for a gorgeous new looking table....inexpensive & very easy way to decorate your home!

    Only $5? WOW! I saw a similar table online and it was $145!!! You are amazing :) Way to see the hidden beauty of a discarded piece and make it beautiful again!

      @Jennifer G Thank you! :) I know, it's crazy isn't it! Just a little bit of work and it looks like that $145 table. ;) Money saved ...I just love that!

    Wonderful work Nancy! Great way to save an old table probably headed for the landfill had you not bought it! Not to mention how great it looks now!!!

    what did you use over the ASCP? Some sort of varnish or wax?

      @Magdamoose I used Polycrylic on this particular table to seal the paint. I've attached the link above if you'd like to read more about it! :)

    If you love chalk paint, you can google how to make your own. Easy, easy, easy and a lot cheaper.
