Argh! You find a great deal on the table you’ve bee looking for, but—dang it—it has a laminate surface. Not a problem, just grab your Annie Sloan Chalk PaintTM and get busy!
Here is my table. I’ve been using it for a painting surface, now it is time to paint it.
Because it has this laminate—super shiney, smooth surface—I decided to break the surface tension with some sand paper.
Here’s how it looked with a little scruffing.
A closer look at the sanding I did, plus the colors I’ve chosen (Annie Sloan Chalk PaintTM in Country Grey on the left and Graphite on the right).
First, the Graphite.
Then the addition of the Country Grey.
I decided to try the Country Grey on the top, too, using a wet rag distressing method. What do you think?
Yeah? Me neither. So we are back in black! I just did a quick coat of graphite again, clear and dark wax again.
Now it is ready to be put into service at your next bridge game or bunko night.
Thanks for your indulgence!
