When Annie Sloan Unfolded asked me which 2 paint colors I wanted them to send me I knew right away.
I completely transformed my vintage side table with Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan.
It was a simple table that I’ve had for a while. I first gave the table a thin coat of French Linen. I sanded it a little when it was dry because I wanted to have a super smooth finish when I was done. (I normally don’t sand between coats, but it makes a HUGE difference)
French Linen is a beautiful color. It’s rich and soft all at the same time. Very much like a creamy coffee, or a cup of hot chocolate kind of color.
After the second coat dried, I rubbed clear soft wax all over the legs of the table.
I layered the top with sheet music ’til it was covered.
I attached a vintage fridge shelf to the bottom of the table for additional shelving. It’s super cute!
I also used Annie Sloan Versailles as an accent color for another project.
Of course, I’m too impatient to take a before photo, but believe me the transformation is amazing.
(The base coat is French Linen again)
Here’s the finished product.
