An Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Makeover

WOW I can’t believe how fast you can work with this chalk paint. I was amazed that I could transform this table from this…


to this in a matter of a few hours!


I lightly sanded after applying two coats of the Annie Sloan cream chalk paint and I used clear and dark wax.


The longest and hardest part of the whole transformation of this table was sanding and re-staining the tabletop.  


I used Minwax Wood stain and applied three coats to the tabletop.  I completed the base of the table before re-staining the top because of the drying time of the stain.


I have to say, I really like this paint and will definitely use it again.  In fact, I am placing an order for another color as I have more furniture pieces to paint for this bedroom make-over.    


As always, thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day.

  6. Love the table, Gail! It's nice to see how you transformed an oak table to this! My daughter will be taking my oak dining table and I bet this would be a great way to renew it for her.

  7. Love it, Gail !! You did a fabulous job, and I'm not surprised one.bit. that you're going to order more !!

    I love this look with the dark top and creamy bottom... you did a beautiful job.

  9. love how you did your table. its subtle and done with a gentle hand - yet the distressing still shows.. congrats on a job well done.

  10. Gorgeous! Yes, it only takes one piece and you are hooked. Be careful...before you know it you'll be painting everything in sight! LOL!

  11. That is really beautiful now!!! I love the dark top and white distressed legs. I really think I will do my dining room table like that, I like it more every time I see it.
    Hugs, Cindy

  12. I love the way this came out Gail. Really, really nice. I just received my shipment of Annie Chalk Paint not too long ago, but I haven't even had time to use it yet (nursing a hurt hubby).

  13. The makeover looks outstanding...using this paint for the first time today:)


  14. I see you do like chalk paint!! Table looks so good!

  15. I still would like to try Annie Sloan paint and wax. I think I would just use whiteor a light cream. The top color of your table is beautiful. Good mix of color.
