OMG!!! I’m obsessed with my next project!! I found the most BEAUTIFUL antique table and I just had to have it! The detail on this table is crazy!
The table definitely was showing its wear! It had many rough spots, nicks and worn wood spots, so I decided to go ahead and use my handy dandy power sander…
to take care of a few areas that were worn down and would have left a dip in the finished product.
Let me just say this…normally when you use Annie Sloan chalk paint, which is my paint of choice, you really don’t need to sand anything. This paint seems to paint over just about everything! I decided to sand these specific spots because they were so deep, I wanted to make sure when I did paint, the table wouldn’t have “dips” on top.
So, after I worked on just those few little spots, I pulled out my Country Grey Annie Sloan chalk paint and started painting! I decided that this piece was already so unique that I really wanted to distress all of the beautiful details around the table…
I then sealed the paint with two coats of Annie Sloan Clear Wax and topped it off with a coat of Annie Sloan dark wax to give it just a little more of a unique look.
I think it turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!! What do you think?
It’s been distressed to perfection with a shabby chic, antique rustic flare and would look great as the statement piece in any room or store!
Whether as a coffee table, sofa table or even a display piece or stand, this would work perfectly! It would also draw attention as a unique entryway or hallway table in just about any home. It’s definitely one of a kind!
