Entry Table Makeover


I was given this laminate entry table by a friend after she moved.  I took it thinking that I’d eventually fix it up, or at least paint it to make it cute.  Well, I’ve had it for 2 years, and it still sat untouched–until I came across the FolkArt Home Decor Chalk and Home Decor Wax.  As Chalk paint is all the rage every where, and it boasts the “no-priming or sanding necessary” I was so excited to give it a try!  Have you seen this on the shelves in your local craft store?


Well, the new Plaid product gave me the needed motivation to turn the ugly fake-wood colored entry table into this cute new piece!



The Product:



The step-by-step process easy!  I wiped the table down with a damp rag to get rid of dust and dirt, etc and taped off the top of the table with Painter’s Tape.  Once it dried, I used a paintbrush to brush on 2 layers of the Chalk paint.  It was fun to paint with: it felt a little like I was painting with thick pudding!  After the two coats of paint dried, I followed the directions on the Wax label, and put a coat of that one as well.

I’m thrilled with how the piece turned out!  It’s so fun the way a fresh coat of paint can brighten up any project!
