Another table got "Chalked"

I just love this stuff and I love how fast you can get a piece finished!! This is the table in my sitting room/playroom I used old white and then the clear wax on it.
                                                                         BEFORE


                                                                           AFTER 




         

                  I love how all the detail work stands out now.

                                    One more Before....


Now I am on the hunt for some new pillows for these chairs. These chairs are really not my style but they are perfect for now with the kids, especially little Miss Victoria and her lollipops!



I also redid this toy box that my dad made for me when Mackenzie was born 11yrs ago, now Victoria has all her goodies in there. All 3 of my kids got plenty of use out of this. I used black paint that I already had and then stenciled the numbers on it, the numbers are my favorite part!


I always love and appreciate your visits! Hope you all are having a great week!  Martina

Oh my gosh I just love it! I've got a can of Old White that is sitting there just waiting to be opened. I really have got to do something with it. Thanks for the inspiration. Did you do 2 coats? Oh and the wicker tray is perfect.

Martina, the table looks great all chalked and sanded. I love the way it brings out the detail. I am working on a piece, too. So darn addictive!

Looks fantastic Martina. Really brightens up the area too. Good job girl. I have nothing in the works right now as far as painting furniture..I have no time on my hands with these little guys home LOL.

Becca said...

It looks great, Martina !! It truly pops now against paired with your beautiful chairs. Love the distressing you did, as well !! What's next ?! LOL

Gina said...

Your table looks great! I think that painting it changed that whole area of your room for the better. I have some leather too & I can't wait until the kids are done trashing it so I can get rid of it!

Nancy said...

I love it! Your finish looks fabulous. I am clueless though...what exactly is old white? Is it a brand of paint? I'm embarrassed but not enough to keep me from asking because I've got a couple of pieces I'd like to do like this! ;-)

Your chest is a real beauty now. I love the wicker tray on top, too. I really must order some of the chalk paint.

Janette@the2seasons said...

Question: I am about to paint an armoire with chalk paint. Do you have to use her brand of wax, or will a brand like Johnson's paint wax work?

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

I love it! You are right... the details just pop out now!!! The shape of you table is gorgeous, too.

Turned out amazing! How much chalk paint did that piece take? I am wanting to order some and don't know how much to get! I have 2dressers, 2 nightstands, mirror, and full size bed!
