Chalk paint sneak peek

So, do you remember the library table that I picked up in Brimfield, Massachusetts, in the fall?

I was so happy to find it and I’m going to use it in my cottage bathroom.  You can read all about it in my previous posts here and here.

My design sketch for the bathroom.

I was thrilled when Victoria from the FAT PAINT Company offered some chalk paint for me to try out.  She even allowed me to customize my colour.  So I chose Benjamin Moore’s Van Courtland Blue HC-145.


I also picked up some of her antique and clear waxes.
Here’s the table in progress.
And a close up of a leg after two coats of the chalk paint.

After a light coat of the antique wax and clear wax and a little buffing.  Isn’t the sheen just lovely?
I’ve decided to keep the top in the natural wood finish but with many coats of clear wax.  You can see how the wood just soaked up the wax.

So here’s how it is now. I still have to put some more coats of wax on the top and I’m going to add some height to the table by adding some pre-made 4″ legs to the bottom. Wish me luck!

I’m off to the Interior Design Show in Toronto this week.
