Table revamped with Chalk Paint

A few weeks ago I bumped into a fellow Heritage Square Antique Mall vendor while thrifting.  Beth and I both looked at this table for quite a while.  She ultimately talked me into getting it.

I loved all the detail so I dragged it to the cottage so I could jazz her up.

I painted the legs first, using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – Provence.

I distressed the details and then used clear and dark wax to create a worn and wonderful patina.

The top of the table featured a painted design – perhaps a bit art decco?

Overall, the top was in pretty bad shape.  I debated salvaging this design, but decided against it.

I’m in the process of finishing up a mate for this table.  You’ll have to stay tuned.

I picture this being used as a desk, but it will make a darling dining table or an entry piece.  The detail is fabulous!

She will be available soon.

Have a great Monday!

I always want to buy furniture and redo it but I haven't taken the plunge. Your photo tutorials like this make it look so easy- and the result is beautiful. Maybe I can.. ;-)

Is the top a different shade or a clear wax finish (vs. the bottom w/a dark wax?)? tx
