Coincidentally, I had recently been leafing through one of my favorite home
catalogs, Wisteria and fell in love with their Cabriole-Leg Table Set and knew I had to refinish my table set to reflect their traditional Swedish design.
If you have been following my blog, you may recall my Homemade Chalk Paint Experiment and the resulting table shown below. I decided to use the same technique on my nesting table set.
So, I mixed 2 tablespoons of non-sanded grout and one cup of leftover flat white ceiling paint and began to paint my tables.
Below you will find the 'before and after' with one coat of paint.
This chalk paint recipe provides even and full coverage much like Annie Sloan Chalk paint at a fraction of the cost. After two coats of chalk paint, I lightly sanded each of the tables and generously applied my 'go-to' Howard Citrus Shield Premium Wax in Golden Oak. So easy to apply, 'wax on, wax off'...
Now, this is where I need your help. I'm not too sure about the final color of the tables so I repainted one with a 'grey' chalk paint that I mixed with some leftover Behr paint. I then sanded it and applied my 'go-to' wax. Below, are my two tables with their final waxed finish. They are positioned in between my two Craigslist Cane Chairs and will complete one of the vignettes in my spare bedroom.
Project #5 Almost Complete!
Your vote will determine how I paint the entire set, WHITE OR GREY....
Let me know what you think.....
