Chalk Painted Table with Dark Wax

Posted by on May 29, 2013 in chalk paint | 13 comments

When I first started gathering furniture to paint and sell. . .

…I gave myself some rules.

Rule #1:

I can’t keep any of the furniture unless it REALLY has a place in my house.

Rule #2:

If I keep a piece, I HAVE to get rid of another.

So it looks like I’m going to be getting rid of a piece of furniture. . .🙂

This table actually matches my new coffee table.

Even though I used a Southern Honey paint called Otis.

(Instead of MMS Ironstone for my coffee table.)

And I waxed the whole thing with Annie Sloan dark wax.

It is just too perfect for my family room.

Not being too “matchy“…

…Just the perfect amount of “matchy.”

And I’m following my rules.

I’ve already moved the table that was in my family room to the garage.

It will get a fresh coat of paint,

and move on out.

Life to the full!

  1. Did you do a post showing your new coffee table? I’m behind as usual. Love to see the new coffee table. Really like the end table, love the legs and color and love that you left the top wood finish. Seeing that a great deal now and it’s great. Gives a piece much interest.

  2. Hi, great table. I was wondering if the colour of the paint is more yellow or more green. . ? What would you say?
    It’s very nice. And interesting.

  3. It sure is cute and that dark wax does the trick. Congratulations on keeping the rules. This way you can continue to have new things. It can be hard to let go, but then sort of freeing too. Hope you enjoy it!

  4. LOL, I have a similar rule, Melissa! Along with, it has to fit in my car and I have to be able to move it around by myself. This looks like such a sturdy, solid table. I have a coffee table with legs just like that.

  5. You do such beautiful work. I’m terrified of the AS Dark Wax (and have had fits using the clear wax.) Would love to see a tutorial on how you wax with such great results.

  6. It turned out absolutely beautiful, Melissa! I am really starting to dig the paint – stain mixed furniture. I know, I know, I’m a little late to the party! ha! Excellent choice in keeping it! I would have too! – Karen

  7. Cute table and I love the color. Can’t wait to see it all in place. Hugs, Marty

  8. The paint color is fresh and springy looking. Enjoying your blog posts and have joined your site.

  9. I love it! I’m just starting to use chalk paint and I love the look of it….so I’m not sure I could follow your rules of getting rid of one to keep another 🙂 Found you on Nifty Thrifty Things!

  10. Lovely! I’ll be painting this week, as well. I love to see your successes. 🙂

  11. The table looks great! I found a DIY for chalk paint that I’m anxious to try out once we get some sunny days here in MN! Say you at Between Naps on the Porch – thanks for sharing!

  12. This table turned out so cute – I would keep it too! Love the green paint you used with the wood stained top.

  13. What a cute table! Very practical rules you have there!
