French Linen Coffee Table

Recently, I found this amazing, vintage coffee table at a yard sale and it sold the day I bought it and dropped it off at Loot. The woman who bought it, wanted it painted with French Linen Chalk Paint.  

The shape and narrowness of this petite, coffee table are what make it so unique.  The lines are gorgeous on this piece too and I especially like the tiny compartments underneath.

Look at the fabulous carving detail on the top of the table.

Two coats of paint and wax and it looks like a new table ready for a new home.

This is what the coffee table looked like with just French Linen paint.  The details are barely noticeable.

A little Annie Sloan dark wax makes all the difference!

I really worked the dark wax into all the crevasses, so the carving would be accentuated.

Another fabulous make-over! I love the shape and style of the table and your paint and wax redo really brings out its beauty! I'm sure the new owner is thrilled with it! Hugs, Leena

Beautiful!! I've just done a little table in French linen. Think I may wax it too! Did you put clear wax on first?

Gorgeous! You did a great job! I might do this on a china cabinet and buffet.

I just spent some time on your blog looking through your furniture do-overs. I like your vision and your style! You gave me some great ideas - like finding hardware cheap on Craig's List. Thanks!

Keep up the great work!

Ciao sono Simona scrivo dall'Italia, ho scoperto oggi il tuo blog e voglio farti i complimenti è davvero molto bello, ho visto che utilizzi la vernice chalk e vorrei chiederti un consiglio. La usi con il pennello o con la pistola a spruzzo? Ne ho appena vinto un litro e vorrei provarla.
Grazie Simona

That table is lovely, and you are right, the wax really made it perfect. How did you paint underneath the shelf? With a small roller?

I am in the process of redoing a very similar coffee table. I bought the French linen annie sloan paint and the dark wax, but did you do a clear wax first before applying the dark wax? Very intimidated by this project and awaiting your response before I touch my coffee table with the dark
Wax! Lol. Thank you in advance.
