Chalk Painted Table With Gold Feet


Annie Sloan chalk painted table with gold dipped feet.  Love this color!

This side table was badly scratched and abused when I got it.  It must have spent some time in a teenager’s room because it had their latest crush etched into one of the legs…  “I <3 …”   I get so sad when I see beautiful furniture neglected so badly!

I spent a good amount of time sanding and knew I wanted this to be my first experience with the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint I received.  Since there are no stockists near me (Boo), I had to order the paint online.  Go HERE to find your nearest ASCP retailer.

I gave it 2-3 coats of paint depending on the area and did a little distressing.  (The heavily-sanded spots seemed to absorb the paint more.)  Here it is after the first coat:

It looks a little light but the color deepened after the second coat, and became much richer after I applied the AS clear wax.  Finally I used some metallic Sahara Gold craft paint to paint the bottom sections of the legs, giving it a “gold dipped” look which I love.

Here she is in all her finished glory… and no more bearing the scars of a furniture-abusing teenager’s angst.

This Provence color reminds me of Tiffany blue… aka robin’s egg blue… my favorite!

For once, the hardware didn’t need any cleaning or replacing – I was so relieved.

As for my first experience with chalk paint and wax, so far I really like working with them.  After I use it on more projects then maybe I’ll do a full review for you.   😉

Have you used chalk paint?  What do you think of it?  I’d love to hear!

      Thanks Dee, I love the curves too! I wish they still made furniture so beautifully… but also affordable. I guess I’ll have to settle for restoring vintage pieces. 😉

    I just tried chalk pain for the first time over turquoise on a vintage telephone table/bench. My idea was that the lace (ivory) colored chalk paint would mute the brightness of the turquoise. I didn’t get too far because once I got a light coat of chalk paint on the seat of the bench, it looked messy, showing all the streaks which were caused by a flannel rag application. I tried a paint brush and didn’t like the look. I want to see the turquoise but thought a layer of chalk paint would just lighten it some. I’m not sure what I should do with it now. My understanding was that chalk paint was to be used over other paint. I also wanted to distress some of the edges w/ light sanding when I’m done. Ideas?

      Sharon, did you try Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint? Chalk Paint is thicker than most other paints, so if you use it over another paint it will cover it completely (although you might need 2 coats for it look smooth). I have never tried using it with a rag – just a regular brush, so that could be why yours was streaky or it might need another coat of paint. (Also make sure to stir it well before using.) If you want just a subtle wash over the turquoise to lighten it, you could always pour some Chalk Paint into a separate container, add some water to thin it out, and then apply lightly onto the bench. Or you could try dry brushing it on. Generally Chalk Paint can be used over anything, but it’s not required to be used over other paint. For your last question- yes you can definitely distress by lightly sanding some of the edges, that would look great. I do that on a lot of my pieces also. I tried to answer all of your questions, I hope that helps!

        No I didn’t; I found Americana Decor brand at home depot. I tried foam brush, bristle brush and rag, but I think your idea of thinning the paint might help my project. The turquoise paint is just so vibrant. Thank you very much for your help and ideas!
