IH Easy Chalk Paint - Entry Table - Before + After

Friday, January 26, 2018

I am trying to think of something that is equally easy as painting this entry table ...
It's probably as easy as putting groceries away.  You have a place for everything, and as long as you put the items where they should you stored, you can't really mess them up.
Does that even make sense?

I started out with this table.  It's has so many uses throughout the years. It originally was in our entry way of our old home.  Then when we built and it got set aside. As some point I needed a bookcase for the kids, and it ended up in my sons's room.  Lately, it's been in the attic.  I have thought about selling it a million times, and honestly, I am surprised I didn't.  However, something kept holding me back.  It's not a great piece of furniture, it's actually quite cheap, but it has "good bones," if you will.

You can see that it's a deep brown color, which I have little of in the house.  I knew if I was going to keep it I would have to change the color.  Insert - Chalk Paint.  Little Disclosure before I move one ... I have never, before now, used chalk paint.  I had to go and get insurrections before I got started! :)

You can see here the first coat.  It's super simple to paint too.  I used Annie Sloan Charcoal Paint, which is the closest to black they carry. 

Here are the steps that I used: 
3 Coats of Annie Sloan Charcoal Chalk Paint               
 3 coats of Annie Sloan's Black Wax.

I was shocked at just how fast + easy this project was.  It took me just over 4 days, and that includes dry time.  I probably spend 40 mins a night working on each coat.  It doesn't get much easier than that!
