My first chalk paint project

I have been wanting to try the homemade chalk paint that everyone is talking about.  I bought the perfect table this weekend at a yardsale for $5.00 and it was screaming for a makeover.  This is the before and after.

All ready for its makeover

Love it. This is going to the shop for resale. I  have to admit that I did love working with this chalk paint.  It was very easy to paint and even easier to distress.  I sealed it with a rubbed on furniture wax.    I may be addicted.  I painted a few other projects while I was working on this one too.  More posts to come.
