This table is one of the very first pieces of furniture I ever bought, a looong time ago. The natural pine finish and Southwestern style cutouts gave it a very dated look, but nothing a little bit of paint couldn't cure.
The stars aligned when a friend of mine, who is an interior painter with a very creative side, began to really pursue her passion for painting things other than walls and took an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshop at a local Annie Sloan retailer, Studio 184.
I walked her through my house and pointed out all of the pieces that needed a facelift (many) and we chose the table and some Olive paint.
which we mixed with a touch of
no, I don't think so.
My friend suggested Graphite.
Now that's more like it.
Have you tried Annie Sloan Chalk Paint? I love the colors and the ease of application. And who doesn't love having a friend ready, willing and able to add her creative touches to tired furniture?
Stay tuned, my friend and I have collaborated on some other pieces, which I can't wait to show you. And like my furniture needing an update, my painter friend is revamping her business identity to incorporate furniture and other creative projects. More to come....
PS, yes, the new pillows on my chairs were made by none other than my CSIL
