So, being the ever perfect mother 🙂 I volunteered to hit the thrifting trail in search of a proper coffee table.
Sometimes the thrift stores have depleted inventory or the prices are outside of our budget, but I remained hopeful.
The table was a tad beat-up and had definite damage from wear and neglect. The table top needed to be lightly sanded because of the red ink and I wanted to avoid bleed-through with my chalk paint. Imagine my surprise to discover that this spot wasn’t glue at all…it was chewing gum!!!
Jenn and I have used Napoleonic Blue for this end table and this modern buffet and we love the color. One of the things that I love most about chalk paint are the different finishes you can achieve in your overall look.
Just for fun, I put the freshly painted coffee table in my sunroom.
the paste wax is typically dry after 48 hours and totally cured in 30 days. Although a small part of me wants to say to Jenn “Mama’s got a new coffee table” LOL! I had leftover materials on-hand for this project, so my only investment was the table purchase and my time.
