At first when I found this table at a garage sale, I was hesitant if I really wanted it or not. Since it was the end of the day and the lady was slashing prices, I got it for $10. I thought...well I can at least practice on trying out making homemade chalk paint.
I lightly sanded it and gave it two coats of my homemade chalk paint I made with the Valspar sample size satin paints in soft camel from Lowes and Pottery Plaster from Hobby Lobby and of course water, which if you don't work fast enough, you have to keep adding more because it starts to thicken! For the accent color, I used Martha Stewart Living metallic paint in Golden Pearl.
A couple of days later, I gave it a couple of coats of clear paste wax. I was going to try giving it a coat of dark wax too, but everyone seems to like the look of it now. Maybe I will just keep it like this for a while. Thanks for all the inspirational blogs out there...I did it!
