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.
  • $5 thrift store table very beat up.
A few coats of Polyshades later and it was looking like new.

    Hi! Chalk Paint is another type of paint to paint with! You can make chalkboards with it also as it has those qualities. You have to seal it in some way for use with furniture. I use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
