Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Projects - Part II

This is the second part of a discussion about recently completed Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) projects - another set of chairs and two tables for my newly renovated lower level - I am an ASCP fool!

Here's a link to part I - Part I.


I bought these chairs at a local consignment store - My Favorite Place.  I cleaned the woodwork which was dingy and uneven, and painted it with two coats of ASCP "Old White".  One technique which works well for me is to turn the piece over at the beginning and paint from this angle to make sure all areas are covered.  I finished the woodwork with clear wax.
Completed chairs after professional upholstery work by the fabulous Lee's of Norcross, Georgia.   I used this crisp green and white print to offset the woodwork.  I love how these turned out!

I purchased this tray table (it collapses) at a recent estate sale with the idea of using it in flexible space in my newly renovated terrace level.  It was all wood and solidly constructed.  I used "Graphite" with a dark wax finish.

I had been using this garage sale sofa table in my old space but planned to get rid of it.  It is well constructed but I didn't want anything shiny and "brown" in this space.  It also had some pretty good scratches on the top.  I decided to experiment with ASCP "Duck Egg Blue" to see if I would like it well enough to use.  If not, the plan was to sell at my own upcoming garage sale.  I used one coat with touch-up of the paint and a coat of clear wax.  I did like the outcome but wanted to see how it would actually work in the space.
Table in my new space - I love it.  The two photograph canvases are getting two companions (my own photos) and will be hung above this table.  I will probably also add a lamp and a few other accent pieces on top of the table.  I love the color and look!  It perfectly matches my new space - here's a link to a blog about the rest of that space - link to blog about space.
