I'd also been rolling the thought around in my head to give this table a makeover. While shopping at JoAnns recently, I picked up a couple bottles of the Folk Art, Home Decor Chalk Paint. One of the bottles was Adirondack White, so I painted the table with it.
First, I moved the table into the breakfast room. This room gets lots of light from the sunroom.
I removed the drawer knobs, and gathered my supplies.
As usual with chalk paint, no sanding or priming was required, so I got busy painting.
This chalk paint doesn't
provide the same coverage as ASCP, and I really needed a little more than I had, but until I can mix up some chalk paint of my own, I'll use a runner on top.
I had planned to place it in the entry from the foyer to the dining room, but it took up too much room near the front door.
I placed it at the windows in the dining room. Even though close to the dining table, there is plenty of room to walk, pull out the dining chair, and get a vacuum cleaner in the space, and hey, it's a new place to decorate!!!
After playing around with the objects on top, I have it ready for spring!!
Love this old clock.
Of course I had to shabby it up a little.
I plan to put another coat of paint on the top.
I kept changing the vignette until.......
.....I have it like I want it
for now, I think!
