Discovering Annie Sloan Chalk paint

Hello and welcome! 
I am so happy to be back to share some of my projects with you.
I have discovered Annie Sloan Chalk paint and have been busy bringing new life to some old furniture pieces. I need a lot of furniture for the country home we purchased last year and the chalk paint has made it easy to pull things together and add some country charm to some of the furniture pieces I have found.

This small dark table was painted with two coats of Annie Sloan “Old White” chalk paint. Followed by some light distressing with fine sandpaper and then a coat of clear wax. Buff to a shine after the wax has dried.

My first attempt using chalk paint went pretty smoothly so I decided to tackle another project…
 an old coffee table and side table that my mother had stored away.
They are great tables but too dark for the look I am going for.

After a few coats of paint…LOVE IT!

Looking forward to sharing more projects with you soon.
Thanks for coming by,
