Leather Topped Table: Chalk Paint Makeover

We have had this leather topped table at Loot for a while.  Several months ago, Nancy set a hot tea pot on top of the table, which left burn marks on the leather inset on the top of the table.  One of the reasons I love Chalk Paint so much is that it sticks to everything, including leather.



I love this round table with its new look and I can picture it in its imaginary new home, in the center of a grand foyer, with a floral arrangement on top.

 Even without the burn marks on top, I still prefer the painted version to the original, but that is not surprising. After all, I am a woman that loves painted furniture!

I painted the top of the table with Graphite Chalk Paint and the base with Old Ochre.  I used Annie Sloan clear and dark wax over the Old Ochre, and a dark wax glaze on the top to deepen the Graphite. 

The Chalk Paint adhered and covered the leather table top flawlessly.

I have used this color combination before, and I always think it makes the piece of furniture look elegant and sophisticated.  I also love the way the Old Ochre Chalk Paint looks with dark wax over it.

Amanda, you did an amazing job on this table. I had a table exactly like yours last year. I painted it duck egg blue & put a clock face on the top. The post I wrote about it is called "A Set of Drum Tables". Your welcomed to take a look if you want. Love your color combo. Beautiful job! Dee from My Painted Stuff.

I have two leather top tables and wonder do u paint the leather in the same way as other material eg wood metal ? I'm looking online and can't seem to find a tutorial for leather. Thank you,
