My Ever-Changing Kitchen Table Saga And A Huge LIfe Announcement!


After many different unsuccessful kitchen table and chair combinations, I found a perfect set for our family. With a bit of help from my favorite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Pure White, a wet rag and some soft wax I was able to transform the table into something unique and perfect for our family. The chairs were updated with a cheery yellow and white graphic outdoor fabric and some scotch guard for protection. I'm thrilled with the results and so is the rest of the family!

    What sort of prep did you do before painting the table? Did it need to be sanded?

    Do you need to sand the table first?

      No with chalky finish paints you do not need to prep or sand. Just a clean dry surface. If the surface is very shiny and no grain texture coming through I do scuff up the finish with some sandpaper.

    can this paint be used on white painted cabinets that used to be ugly plain '60's wood....real wood tho. We painted them white many many years ago and they need help.

      As long as you clean them really well first and gave them a bit of a scuff with some sandpaper just to insure adhesion. I always suggest doing that when painting kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
