My sister decided to get rid of an old end table in her living room. I asked her if I could have it to repaint. I had been dying to try out some Annie Sloan chalk paint and some stenciling techniques. I didn’t think too much about this piece since it was a freebie 🙂 I just slathered some AS Paris Grey on it. I decided it needed a little something more so I added some dark wax around the edges. I then added my stencil which I had picked up at a local antique shop. I used a pewter Martha Stewart craft paint and a small sponge brush to apply. After it had dried I added two coats of clear wax. I absolutely LOVE this table. I sit in my sun room, with a cup of coffee, and think about my sister every morning. Definitely better than the old corduroy pants she used to give me:-)
I liked this table so much I decided to “redo” some old rocking chairs from our childhood using the same techniques.
