I was able to get the second table in my craft/sewing room painted last week while hubby was out of town again. This one is my sewing table where my sewing machine sits. The first table I painted was this one and you can read about that here.
The sewing table was just getting a coat of Pure White chalk paint on the top since I have the bottom skirted in a toile fabric.
Here it is after the first coat. The Pure White is a color that can easily wind up needing three coats on a piece.
After the third coat and some clear wax she was done and pushed back against the wall.
I waited a couple of days before putting everything back in place, but it takes a long, long time for this to be truly cured. However, I don’t have months to wait before I can use this table again for some sewing!
Although I went with the Pure White because I wanted these tables to be white, I have to say that, as for as the lighter colors go, the Old White is my favorite. Being a fan of Heirloom White, the Old White is very close in the chalk paint colors.
Not a fan of the Pure White, but since I still have half a quart left I will be using it up on certain future projects.
I recently got another can of Old White to start my roadside rescue dresser makeover and that is up next on my painting list. I do need to take a day to get back to finishing my sunroom valances though, so it may be a week or so before I have some pictures to share of the dresser.
