1950's End Table Makeover

The last two weeks have been crazy with traveling and the kitchen remodel. The kitchen remodel is almost complete. We just need the cabinet hardware installed and we are done! The big reveal is coming soon, so keep checking back.

I finally found some time to paint this week. This end table was a Goodwill purchase a few months back, and I thought it would be a quick project to bang out. It is a quintessential 1950's end table. Both my mother and mother-in-law mentioned to me they each had one in their houses growing up.

I wanted a chippy, farmhouse finish for this piece so I put my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in refrigerator for a couple of house before I applied it so it would go on thick.

I applied two coats of Old White to the piece and let it dry for 24 hours. Then I took multiple pieces of duct tape stuck it on the table and ripped it off. This process took off some chunky chips of paint.

I got my sanding block out to distress the edges down and added a fleur-di-lis to each side in Duck Egg Blue. Then, I finished it off with some Annie Sloan clear wax.

I would love to put this piece somewhere in my house, but I have officially run out of space. So this will be my very first piece I try to sell. It is available for $50. Use the "contact form" to the right if you would like information on how to purchase it.
