Small Table in Layered Chalk Paint


Hey guys!  I’m still working on items for the vintage market, and that includes some small furniture as well.  I painted this small table over the weekend:

This post contains affiliate links, at no extra cost to you, so that you can easily find some of the products I used.

First, I primed it with my favorite primer since reddish wood almost always bleeds through.

Then I imperfectly painted it in Annie Sloan’s Coco Chalk Paint, and after that dried I painted over the Coco with Old Ochre Chalk Paint.

Finally I distressed it by sanding all over so that the wood and the Coco peek through from underneath.  And here she is…..

I just love the style and the details in this little table.

The distressing really brings out the lines and curves and the beautiful texture.

I ended up sealing it with MasterClear topcoat, since I had it nearby from the metallic nightstand that I just painted.

    Can I ask why you used other topcoat instead of wax?

      Chris, the first reason is that I might have been a bit lazy and didn’t want to walk downstairs to get the wax when the MasterClear was still nearby from the last table I painted (since it’s the recommended finish for metallic paint). The second reason is that the vintage market that I’m selling this piece at is outdoors, and if there’s a chance that it might be a warm day, I didn’t want to worry about the wax starting to melt or feel sticky (since it’s not recommended for outdoor pieces). Hope that helps!
