How to Revamp Your Old Kitchen Table {Using Chalk Paint}

Dining-Room-Table-Close-Up

Well friends, I finally did it. I can now finally say I have used chalk paint. I had wanted to give it a try for a while with all the buzz I’ve been hearing about it, but never really had the right project. Well the right project finally came along with my new/old dining room set.

When I moved down to Greenville, my parents gave me their old kitchen table that had been sitting in my grandparent’s garage for a few years to use in my new place. Since I didn’t already have a kitchen table, a free table was definitely appealing. Plus, given that I didn’t have a job lined up right away, buying a kitchen table and chairs was out of the question. But, the downside was that it looked like this.

Old 2 New:: Sofa Table Renovation

For today’s Old 2 New transformation, I have another Annie Sloan Chalk Paint project from My Front Porch To Yours.This time it’s for a sofa table that had been stored in Pamela’s garage.

Overall, it looks pretty good, but was a bit scuffed up and could use a little TLC.

She used ASCP in duck egg blue underneath.

And one coat of Old White on top.

She sanded down the entire piece and added a few layers of wax.

And here’s the final product.

Doesn’t it look like something right out of Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs?

Be sure to hop on over to Pamela’s to see a full step by step tutorial. I recently bought a sofa table from Goodwill. It’s been sitting in my parents’ garage (sorry mom and dad). Maybe I’ll copy Pamela and do something similar to her sofa table. Might be a little ambitious, but we’ll see!

Today I’m starting a new series called Old 2 New. Each Friday for the next few months I’ll be showcasing things that people have transformed from Old 2 New! I love to see people transform something that was once old or even trash into something really beautiful. Sometimes I have a hard time seeing the beauty in something old, but hopefully this will inspire both you and me to see the potential in pieces! So, let’s take a look at the first Old 2 New feature! Erin from How To Nest For Less transformed this old magazine table… into this gorgeous and textured magazine table! Don’t you love the different tones she used?

Be sure and check out her full tutorial on how she transformed this table!

Have you heard about Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint? This chalk paint was used to transform this magazine table.  I’ve seen it all over blog land. It’s a dream for a DIY person because it requires no sanding or priming before and is easy to distress and add dimension to pieces once it’s on. If you live in or around the Brentwood/Franklin, TN area, one of my awesome blog readers told me you can get it at a local store in Brentwood called C’est Moi. I’ve never been there but I’m excited to check it out! Maybe I’ll work on my own little diy project with this paint soon!Hope you enjoyed the first Old 2 New feature!

Have any of you ever used Annie Sloan’s chalk paint?
