Coffee Table Chalk Paint Makeover @ Little House on the Corner

Chalk Paint Coffee Table Makeover

** UPDATE: I just wanted to say hello and thanks to all of you who are visiting from Pinterest! It appears this particular pin has gotten a lot of love. Since I finished this table makeover around 2 years ago, it's still holding up great. The table doesn't get a ton of heavy use, although I've since applied two extra coats of wax for good measure. And now back to your regularly scheduled blog reading! ** Seven months. That's how long it's been since my last blog post. Whoops! There's been…

The Newest of Old: Gaston Annie Sloan Old Ochre and Dark Wax

Gaston

Gaston was named with inspiration from Beauty and the Beast...as it is a beauty...but it was a beast to repair. I know there was a great debate between my followers on whether Gaston should be painted or not, and then not long after Miss Mustard Seed also came out with a post about painting Vs. not painting furniture.

Well, last week I posted two little photos to my Instagram page. These particular posts were photos of a nightstand that I had refinished with chalk paint. This also happened to be my first ...
