I experimented with the latest DIY (do it yourself) craze — chalk paint.
A couple of years ago I bought this small table to put next to the recliner. I stained it and used it.
When deciding what small piece to experiment with, this little table volunteered. Of course, I forgot a before picture. But I remembered to grab one while at least one leg was still unpainted.
I made my own chalk paint, using a sample color I got from Home Depot, a little plaster of paris, and some water.
After a quick dry time, a little buffing, then the second coat of wax. Wax on, wax off.
Dry and buff. Miko seems to like it. The wall behind the table is a light peach color, though the picture makes it look a little pinkish.
Maybe this one shows the wall color better.
Anyway, I am pleased with the experiment. This will be my next piece. A cute little thing I grabbed at a yard sale. It will be perfect next to the new chair in the sewing room. Maybe white, with the drawer a light blue?
