My first project with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint hereafter known as (ASCP)

ugly table, help me!

.......and it won't be the last.  In fact it's the beginning of a time line before ASCP and after ASCP.  I have been saving this ugly little table until I got my paint brust in some ASCP. It was so shinny that the flash bounced off the top and the front was laminate, ugg. Otherwise it was a solid wood very sturdy piece and I loved the harlequin pattern on the top and the detail on the legs.  I painted it Chateau grey which is more of a green.  No sanding first, honest. Then I glazed it with a cream and distressed it.  What do you think ? Tres Francais, n'est pas? I have added it to my space at the Corner Store Antiques and more in Little Mountain,SC.  Check us out on facebook.  I will post more pictures of my space there. Thanks for reading and bye for now.


  1. Hey! So you used that chalk paint on laminate? Do you think it would be durable on laminate? The table is beautiful! JenT

  2. Hi Jen, I have to admit I was sceptical, but on the way to take the piece to the Corner Store, I dropped the drawer face down on the asphalt, it kind of fell out of the table.. I held my breath, picked it up and breathed a sigh of relief. No nics or damage. I did use the clear wax on the whole piece. So I say go for it. Thanks for your comment. Jan

  3. Beautiful transformation. Love hearing what the Chalk Paint will adhere to. I just did a piece with Bamboo. Adhesion is wonderful!!!
