After seeing all the great white spaces at the Where Bloggers Create party in July, it made me want to move ahead on painting the two tables in my craft/sewing room white. Here they are as seen in my post about my space.
The one is covered in a toile fabric skirt, so I only plan on painting the top of that one. The other one was getting a full paint job so I decided to start with that one. Here it is in the garage ready to get painted. I chose ASCP Pure White because the walls are very close to the Old White and Old Ochre colors and I didn’t want the tables to blend in with the walls.
The table had a mahogany colored stain on it so I knew it would need a few coats of the white, even if it is chalk paint. Here it is after one coat.
After two coats the coverage was looking pretty good on the legs and the sides. I had to do a third coat on the top and the shelf.
I decided to add a little interest to this otherwise plain table by adding stripes to the drawer like I saw Amy at Maison Décor did to a vanity table. Very fun look! I had some Coco in a sample pot so I decided to use that. I taped off for several stripes and painted them on.
Once everything was dry I did clear wax only. I wasn’t looking to distress or age it; I want the nice clean white look to it.
Here it is back in place in my craft/sewing room! Without the junk I normally have on it.
I think it makes a nice difference from the dark stain it originally had and lightens up this small room a bit more for me.
