Coral Chalk Paint Table

Posted by on Jun 15, 2013 in chalk paint, painted furniture | 22 comments

I wish I lived in Mayberry.

I’d own a little store right beside Floyd’s Barber Shop.

I’d live down the street,

so that I could walk to work.

(My house would be the one

with the wrap around front porch,

and the picket fence.)

I’d be careful not to jay-walk.

Barney might be watching.

Just a little dream of mine. . .

In the mean time,

Murfreesboro is probably as close as I am going to get to Mayberry. . .

And, even though I don’t own the shop.

And, I have to drive to get to the square.

I love that I get to sell my things

at Simply Southern,

nestled right between

the dress store,

and the barber shop.

I painted this table with one of the Lowes Valspar sample paints called Sonoma Rose,

and Annie Sloan Old White.

I added Webster’s chalk paint mix to the Valspar paint,

shook thoroughly,



and topped it all of with a clear wax.

Life to the full!

  2. Hi Melissa,
    I have been following for a while and love all your posts and beautiful transformations. I just don’t always have the time to comment, but your email came through as I was wrapping up my post and I quickly headed over. I love your table, the color and the distressing. You evoke beautiful images as you describe Mayberry!

    I am off to see my hubby in hospital. I hope you can come over for a quick visit!
