Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
Now, here is a little disclaimer. Altogether, the supplies to paint cost around $150 - paint, brushes, rags, sandpaper, etc. And I suppose for $175 I could've bought a pretty kick-ass side table ready-to-go. But I have plenty of paint left after this project.
I like that I was able to customize it completely. A furniture makeover has been something I've wanted to do for a long time so it was pretty rewarding doing this project!
Tyler and I decided to go with English Yellow. Our living room is pretty neutral and I have been wanting to use pops of color as much as I can.
Drawer Knobs, Screwdriver
How-ToI'm going to try to make these steps as simple as possible because it took a lot of reading in a lot of places to find steps to what I feel is a pretty simple process. You can see all the steps in the captions below.
The Finished Product
A few things to note - I have read on several blogs that the entire curing process takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks so we will have to be careful when putting anything wet on our table. Use your coasters, ladies and gentleman! I will be waiting a few days before I put anything on our table just to make sure the paint is completely set.
I'd love to do more furniture makeovers in the future, but for now I'm enjoying my very first project piece who looks quite at home in our apartment.
