Hello Everybody! The other day my door bell rang and it was my next door neighbor. She asked me to come over, if I had a moment . She said that she and her husband had been cleaning out their attic and they had a few things they thought I might be interested in. Of course I said yes and walked right over there!
Sitting there was this beautiful oval coffee table.
I wasted no time on this piece when I brought it home.
I sanded the top and painted the base with Annie Sloan white chalk paint.
I lightly distressed it, applied Annie Sloan clear wax and restrained the top with Minwax Wood Finish Provincial.
And, then there was this old weathered rocking chair. I started painting it with Miss Mustard Seed Lucketts Green milk paint before I realized that I hadn’t taken a picture of it.
Although I didn’t get as much chipping with the milk paint as I had hoped, I am still happy with the results. Some of the old white that was once on the rocker still shows through.
I love these attic finds especially since I barely left the comfort of my own home to get them. I have spent many hours hunting for treasures like these!
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! This weekend I plan on hitting a few yards sales. Tis the season and there are tons of them listed!!
