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.
