This cute round table was purchased at an auction recently.
The bottom was painted in Cece Caldwell chalk paint and the top was painted white with the new Americana Chalky Finish paint by DecoArt. The DecoArt paint is a little thicker that the Cece Caldwell brand and it has really nice coverage. I enjoyed using it and will probably purchase more.
The entire table was coated with Cece Caldwell brand satin finish, not wax. I have to admit that I am little tired of waxing. Plus, I’m may be bringing this table with me to the Carlisle Country Craft and Old Fashioned Mercantile Market in August and apparently if you leave waxed furniture out in the sun too long, the wax gets a little bit melty… or so I’ve heard.
The “Paris” design on top is courtesy of the Graphics Fairy (of course!). I used the same method as I used on a coffee table in the past, which you can view here. Basically I scribbled like mad with a pencil on the back of the paper and then laid the paper on the table and traced over the design. I then went over the pencil marks with paint. The painting process takes patience, but is definitely worth it in the end.
As usual, I’m wishing I had a spot for it so I could have an excuse to keep it!
