Coco and Duck Egg Dining Table

I picked up this boring, light wood table with a matching bench at a yard sale.  I see this kind of table everywhere, but I decided to buy this particular one because it was so cheap and it came with the bench.

I painted the tops of the table and bench with Coco and the legs with Duck Egg blue Chalk Paint.


Because this is a dining table, I applied two coats of clear wax to the tabletop for extra protection.  I distressed and applied a little dark wax along all the edges of the tabletop and bench.

I painted the legs with Coco before painting Duck Egg as the top coat. Then, I heavily distressed the legs, so the Coco base coat and natural wood showed through.  I finished the legs with clear and dark wax for an antiqued finish.  

This was an easy way to transform a plain and inexpensive kitchen table and bench into a stylish set.

Beautiful!!! I'm sure this will be gone quickly!

Unknown said...

Thank you for doing this! I'm planning on redoing my kitchen table and this gives me something to show the hubs!

I like the colour and I think it would look nice with black legs too - nice job though!

Mariaelena said...

Love it!...great color choices...a quick question? Do you usually use only one coat of AS paint for your furniture? I just bought some in pure white and am working on 2 bedside tables. I'm really feeling like they need 2 coats, but everything I read says you most likely need only 1...
Thanks, Mariaelena

Wow what a beauty :) I love the combo of colors. I will have to give this combo a try! Thanks for inspiring me yet again.

Deborah said...

Hi Amanda!!!!

I love what you've done to this table and benches! Wow, those two colours go great together!
I have the duck egg but have never tried the coco yet. i think I will order some more in the fall.
Hope you are having a nice summer hun. :)
Hugs to you!

Amanda said...

I have not seen this color combo before! I love it! You took a very basic looking table and made it fabulous and unique! Nice work!
Best Wishes and Blessings,

The White Pear Tree said...

This looks so much like my kitchen table I redid recently! Great minds... (Well, I used Old White on the legs...but otherwise, the table before was the same.)

Nothing is boring after you're done with it. Love it.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful, Amanda! I love that it comes with a matching bench, too. Such a great farmhouse/country look. I love the way you've got the whole vignette set up.

visiting from Open House Party : )

Wow! what a transformation...very nice!

Patricia @ 9th and Denver said...

Hi Amanda-- I'm new to your blog. I love what you've done with this table. So pretty. The distressing on the legs very complimentary.

I couldn't help while reading this post, to notice the antique Chambers Range in the back ground of the 4th photo in this post.
I guess you are a vendor and sale what you make over?
Is that chambers for sale?
I own one and use it in my kitchen, actually own two...and have the other stored, it was my grandmother's...

I love these stoves.

Mary Palumbo Collings said...

Very nice, looks beautiful. Happy to have found your lovely blog. Have a wonderful weekend.

Wendy S. said...

I did my table today....just like this. And I looooove it! Thank you for the idea!

My Grace is Sufficient for you said...

I love this color!!! Did you distress the table before or after you painted it? And do you do anything prior to painting. I usually have issues when i paint over tables like this. Great job:)
