Provence Coffee Table

Now that Loot is a retail partner of Annie Sloan Chalk Pain and I have access to all 29 colors, I am excited to branch out and try the colors I have not used yet. This is the first time I have painted a project with Provence Chalk Paint and I love it!  

I found this beat up, old coffee table at my local thrift shop.  It was in bad shape with an orange finish that was completely worn and scratched all over.  

Mr. Rubbish has been so motivated to help me finish all my projects before I find new ones, that he keeps getting ahead of me (not that I am complaining).  He sanded off the finish on the tabletop before I could even get a good before picture. 

After Mr. Rubbish removed the old finish, I white washed the top of the coffee table by diluting Old White Chalk Paint with water.  I painted the thinned paint on and wiped it back. After I applied a coat of clear wax, I rubbed a heavy coat of  dark wax over it and wiped it back with a cloth. 

Since the bottom was in rough shape, I used random brush strokes, as I painted, to accentuate the rustic quality of the coffee table.

After distressing the table base all over, I applied clear, then dark wax over the Provence paint.

  Doesn't the Provence Chalk Paint look beautiful with a little dark wax?

I love the small, center drawer.  I think this coffee table looks like a simple farm table now.

Really like the provence with the dark wax. I think this color combo looks perfect on this piece.

Gosh, what a gorgeous colour! I think that shade would have to be my absolute most favourite colour! Great choice!

If you have a minute to spare my weekly Say G'Day linky party is in full swing and I would be so thrilled if you could join in and link up this wonderful post!

Best wishes,
