Thrift Store Table Transformed with Chalk Paint & PolyShades

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!
2 coats of Annie Sloan Old White, with a little distressing.
A few coats of Polyshades later and it was looking like new.

    Well...that's that. $40.00 a gallon----$24.00 a quart. Cost-prohibitive for me.

    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!!!
