White Octagon Table

I've been waiting for Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Pure White and chose this octagon table to try it.

The beautiful after.

 The sad looking before.

The top was stripped and stained with Minwax Dark Walnut.

The base was painted with ASCP in Pure White, distressed and finished with the Soft Wax.  Love the texture of this paint.

A classy table you did there. Love the shape too- it's not one you see alot of but is a "wow" factor to any room (IMHO)

Thanks for sharing :D

This turned out really beautiful! Love the shape of this table. I have not used chalk pain before...but I keep seeing it all over the place. How is it different then any other paint?

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

Love the sharp clean look. Nice call on the dark top.

Sarah, Three Boys said...

ooooh pretty! Love the stained top and white!

Kahli said...

I love it Katie! It's so gorgeous!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Oh Katie this is for sure a beauty. I love the dark top. I have a question...I ordered the Aubusson blue AS paint. It looks very teal and I was wondering how to make it more blue? Should I add some Old White? I think I have a sample of Old Ochre too if you think that would help. I'm disappointed. I guess I thought it was more of a navy blue. Maybe I should give up the painting thing and stick to sewing. :o)

Little Moos and My Creative Pink. said...

It looks really nice! So, how do you like the pure white vs. old white?

Once again, Katie, you've knocked yourself out with the Annie Sloan paint!! It looks FANTASTIC!! The cool white married with the warm dark brown is a perfect match. The table legs have some nice features in their curves, too. Great job! andrea@townandprairie

Hi Katie, This is my 2nd attempt at this comment, so if it shows up twice - you'll know why. I am constantly impressed with the beauty of your work. You see potential in pieces that I would probably have passed up. Thanks for linking this up to Fabulous Friday! AND I so appreciated the sweet comments you leave on my blog--they make my day!

Warmly, Michelle

Just saw this post from searching "Annie Sloan white paint". This is my EXACT table that I was planning on painting the bottom white. I am so glad I saw this because now I know it will be beautiful.
