Striped Pedestals


Last weekend, Nancy and I had a booth at Goat Hill Fair.  It was a fabulous event, as usual,  with so many talented vendors and enchanting treasures. We sold Chalk Paint and did a few paint demonstrations at our booth.  


I brought these two, old pedestal tables to Goat Hill for one of my paint demos.  I loved the darling shape of these pedestals, but they were a little too beat-up and dirty looking before.


I cleaned the dirt and dust off and then painted them with Versailles Chalk Paint.  They looked  kind of plain, so I added Old White stripes to the top.  This is what they looked like with a fresh coat of paint, before distressing and waxing.



After distressing them all over, I applied Annie Sloan clear wax, followed by a little dark wax to antique them.

These would be great to hold coffee or drinks. I love what you were able to do with them. If I got these for free I'd just get rid of them. You on the other hand made them in a beautiful piece of art. Whether or not you use them to sit on or to hold things. They are definitely worth keeping now.
