Here’s my newest project…the table, not the dog! It was a butcher block style chunk of wood that I wanted to use as a table top, it was given to me so I didn’t pay anything for it.
I looked into metal table legs and they were pricey! I found all sorts of wooden legs, but they weren’t what I was looking for. Metal hairpin legs were what I really wanted, and I found some here and here but they were just too expensive for this project. I’m saving those for a really cool table!
So, I had been thinking about this and was browsing at Hobby Lobby when I ran across this metal legged table with a wood top. It was 66% off so I paid $18 for the table and couldn’t wait to take it apart when I got it home.
This was my first time to work with chalk paint. My sister Sarah had given me CeCe Caldwell’s chalk paints in two colors, California Sun Yellow and Destin Gulf Green. I used the yellow (obviously!) on this table. I was a little nervous putting the second coat on because it took off some of the first coat…I read the directions about ten times and finally sorted out that I should have just used water as the second coat.
The colors are so vivid and fresh, I am definitely looking for a project for the green color. I am definitely going to use just water for the second coat.
I love the varied color…
Beautiful color! And Milo approves, so it’s all good!
I will be linking to some of these great parties!
