Painted Coffee Table inspired by Tonya Miller Dean|Hemets 1964 coffee table

I was looking around Hometalk and saw a beautiful coffee table that was posted by Tonya Dean Hemet and I was inspired. I wanted to do something similar but didn't have a similar coffee table to paint. Enter Craigs List and a $10 coffee table. See for yourself what a transformation with some distressed homemade chalk paint and poly stain on top.
Thanks Tonya for giving me the idea for this table :)

    I would love to try this, what color chalk paint did you use.

    I used antique white. Get a bottle of antique white chalk paint from Walmart. Fast, easy and cheap. If you need any help, contact me.
