This is a beautiful old Pennsylvania House Queen Anne Cherry table that had seen better days. My mom loved the look of the wood, and everything still looked ok but the table top.
Her decor style is more of a British colonial style with pops of vibrant colors. The color palette in her home consists of mainly black, cherry wood and cream.
WE DECIDED TO USE VALSPAR CHALKY FINISH PAINT MIXED IN A BLACK COLOR. SHE WANTED A TWO TONED TABLE WITH A BLACK TOP.
You can see in the BEFORE picture that mom had already taken blue painters tape and wrapped the edges with it - first step to any paint project!
