Yes, ANOTHER Table!!

Yes, ANOTHER Table!!

Furniture

I hope you are not getting tired of tables!

This table was super fun.  I tried a few new things, I was a little worried as I was working on it but I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

The chairs I dry brushed.  I think this is my new FAVORITE way to paint!  It is so much fun, and I don’t have to worry about runs!!

Here is how I dried brushed,

My first coat was white primer.  I did a very light coat with the grain of the wood.

I then took my top coat of latex paint and with a tiny bit of paint on the brush, and I mean tiny, I brushed with the grain, while the paint was still workable I went back over it against the grain to cover up my brush marks.  As you can see it gets rid of any harsh lines but still allows the white to show through.

You can’t tell too well in this picture but the decals are painted with Annie Sloan’s Old Orche Chalk Paint.

The table is also painted with chalk paint, and the decals of the table are painted with the latex paint, I love the light contrast of the 2, it accents the beautiful designs just enough.  I then sanded everything down and glazed it.

This table is also for sale!  If you live in the Salt Lake City Area and you are interested send me an email

    What color latex paint did you use and what kind/ color glaze? I love it! Does the glaze protect the able top?
