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.

This post is linked to the parties on my sidebar.

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.

What were the steps to refinishing the leather top table using the chalk paint? I have a mahogany leather top table with scalloped edges and claw feet that I'd like to freshen up to go with my newly painted gray living room with light yellow and medium blue accents.
