Kitchen Table Re-Do Featuring Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!

6.05.2012
Recently I refinished the kitchen table. It had seen better days and many years of use. Water damage on the table top and warping was driving me bananas. How could I fix this without breaking the bank? 

I found a local store called Paint in My Hair and met the store owner, Jessica. She had beautiful up-cycled pieces in her shop as well as a full selection of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I was fascinated and knew that this paint would change my table for the better.

Here is the finished project:



I distressed the table and chairs after I painted them, but before I applied the clear wax. Look forward to an upcoming vlog tutorial about this process. I love how it turned out. Best part about this new look? It doesn't show fingerprints like the dark wood used to. Holla!
