A Sweet Little Table

Hi All,
If you still question the power of paint, here’s a transformation that should put that to rest.

Here is the round table that I picked up at a rummage sale for $5. (Playroom to Den)

Look at the detail on the legs and the cute little wheels.
Starting with those great legs, I used Old White and Louis Blue Chalk Paint.

After the second coat of Old White, I distressed the sides and the legs.  Lightly distressing the top to bring out some of the blue.

You can see the blue under the white.  A few coats of wax finished her off.
And now she sits back in the Den, where she will be distressed even more by the kids.

That is the power of paint!
Have a fabulous day!
