Aubusson Blue Entry Table


I love changing furniture with paint.  You can see {here, here and here} that I am a little obsessed.  I had been hearing the buzz about Annie Sloan chalk paint for a while and decided my entry table was the perfect opportunity.  



I got this table back when I was student teaching to put my TV on.  That was before I had a husband that wanted a bigger TV, when I painted EVERYTHING black, and I thought I was old because one of my friends was married {now: babies are everywhere}.  As you can see the entry table needed a new paint job anyway, because it had been moved four times.  

It was ooooogly.


I decided to use Aubusson Blue from Annie Sloan's chalk paint collection.  I really enjoyed using this paint.  It was easy to work with and didn't seem as messy as normal latex paint.  The only real down side to this paint is that it ain't cheap.  I used two coats on this table and topped it off with Minawax Finishing Wax.  The wax looks orange in the can, but it came out clear on the table.  



Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!
