I had the opportunity to help a friend get his vacation rental put together And one of the things he needed was the get furniture put together. He had purchased this table for 50.00 but it was really incomplete. Someone had tried to dry brush with blue and white only And The legs were a contrastIng black. We found the chairs at a savage yard for 10.00 a piece Which was a steal for nice sturdy solid wood

My friend had flat white paint so I brought my drywall mud and mixed it with the white paint for a chalk finish.

we painted the chairs and legs with two coats of white. It dries fast and is super forgiving. Let me tell you my husband and his buddy are the worst painters! Had to sneak around them and blend some spots and get rid of drips.
