I got this vintage table at a yard sale. The painted top was in great shape but the legs were pretty beat up. I didn't want to sand it so I decided to use chalkpaint since it adheres to
anything. I used three coats of yellow DIY chalkpaint, distressed it and coated it with a clear wax. The yellow really brightened it up! To get my DIY chalkpaint recipe just go to my blog!#Hometalktuesday
Updating an old 1800's French sofa to the 2013 version using paint, grain sacks, and drop cloths for upholstery! It retains the "frenchy" feel but in a more relaxed casual way! We invite you to come visit for a closer look!
A friend of mine was giving this away, and when I came to pick it up I could see why. The table was scratched, absolutely filthy (which took forever to clean because of the carving) and
it weighed a thousand pounds. It took three people just to get it in the car! Once it was cleaned up I painted it with aqua DIY chalkpaint, glazed it with a brown paint mixture, shined up the hardware, and coated it in clear wax. I might be keeping this bad boy simply for the fact that no one will be able to lift it out of here! I think this aqua table looks pretty good right where it is!
