Crown Table Makeover

Crown Table Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I’m not one who rushes into things.  I’m a thinker, an introvert, and often slow to make decisions.  And I fall in love easily… with old furniture that has a ton of potential.  That’s why I have about 15 pieces waiting on me (Kidding!  Or am I..?), and why this particular table has been waiting since before I even started blogging…

The top was pretty dinged up.

I sanded the top out and then painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Old White.  The rest is painted in ASCP in Paris Grey.

It distressed naturally when I sanded out a few of the bumps after painting, and it looked pretty good so I didn’t try to fix it.  😉

I added a vintage crown image to the top courtesy of The Graphics Fairy, then I finished it all with Annie Sloan clear wax.

I’m glad I waited to paint this piece because I’m quite happy with how it turned out!

Is anyone else out there bad with decisions… or with falling in love too easily?

      Could you attach the paper printout directly on the chalk paint? Please tell me how?

        Hello Ina,
        I printed the image onto a sheet of plastic paper with an inkjet printer. Immediately after it was printed (while the ink was wet) I laid it onto the painted table and pressed/rubbed for several minutes. You can also do this with text but remember to reverse the image first before printing. Then when you remove the plastic paper you can wipe away the ink to reuse the plastic later. I hope that helps!

    I’m like you, just cannot resist old furniture, especially small ones! I think you made a beautiful makeover with tjis one, simple and elegant. I have tried the ASCP, but I can’t say i succeed too well…..

      Merci beaucoup, Birgitta! ASCP is definitely not your average paint, it does take a little getting used to. I have written a few posts about it and there are also many videos on YouTube to teach people how to paint and wax with ASCP – or you could check if there are any retailers near you and possibly take a class. I hope that helps!
