White Table Report


You're not seeing things...it's another dining room post.  Remember this table? It's a good country French reproduction solid wood table I found on Craigslist.  Pretty, curvy, big.  But I wanted white! 



It's been painted Pure White with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, sanded and waxed and now it looks like this:


I also added four Henriksdal  slip covered chairs from Ikea.  They're really comfy and reasonably priced.  I love how Ikea's designs work so well with a vintage cottage look. It has saved me so much money to get the look I want.



If you're looking for something specific from Craigslist, don't forget about the Garage Sale category. I searched for "dining tables" in Garage Sales and this popped up the night before the sale with a phone number.  Sometimes things just work out. Now, if I could just find my car keys....

  1. Becki! Your photos are magazine quality, and the painted table is such a great change - the details show much better in white!
    Did you use a house painter, furniture painter or did you paint it yourself?
    Cheers!

  2. Hi Linda, what a nice thing to say...you made my day!
    I painted the table myself with a 3" brush I bought from the Annie Sloan dealer. I'm really loving the look!

    Hi. I love your table! Did you use Annie Sloan paint? Did you use dark and clear wax? I am just getting started using this paint and I just tried to use the dark wax and it turned out horrible. I'm not sure what I did wrong...
