Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan – A Table Makeover

Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan
One of my favourite pastimes (when I actually get the time) is painting furniture and sometime soon I’d love to purse some of my upcycled furniture ideas. Ever since I discovered Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan and its diverse range of gorgeous colours,  I’ve had so many upcycled furniture ideas spring into my head.

So far, I’ve painted our bed and bedside tables, a large pot, my IKEA shelves and side table…and I have lots more to go and lots more to share with you.

But today I want to share with you my most recent project where I upcycled a $30 table I purchased from Lifeline. As soon as I spotted this table sitting all by itself at the back of the store, I knew exactly what to do with it and how I could bring it back to life.

The best thing about Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan is that you don’t have to prep the furniture by sanding it back, you pretty much dust it off and paint it!

I’ve put together a quick little video so you can see the transformation and how I upcycled the table using Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan in English Yellow, Annie Sloan Clear Wax and Annie Sloan Dark Wax.


What do you think of the end result? It makes a bold statement, right?

Disclosure: I was gifted sample pots of Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan, Dark Wax by Annie Sloan and an Annie Sloan paint brush for review but used my own Clear Wax by Annie Sloan.
