Drum Table

I painted this drum table with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White and finished with the Soft Wax in Clear.  It has been so dark and cloudy, I'm tempted to paint more of my furniture in white just to lighten things up.

The top was stained with Minwax in Dark Walnut.  The hardware was buffed with steel wool.

Love the pop of color in the drawer.


After.  It was so cloudy, I had a hard time getting decent photos.

Thanks for visiting!

It looks lovely! While sorting furniture in my carriage house a couple of weeks ago, I found a drum table that I had completely forgotten about purchasing. I haven't tried Annie Sloan paint yet, but I know a lot of my friends find it wonderful.

Looks fantastic, I just got one of these tables with 4 lion head drawers around it. I've been wondering what to do with it to refinish. I think I'm going to copy a bit...stained top and painted bottom! Looks great!

Wow this looks terrific! I have a dining table with the same claw capped feet as yours that I just finished. I can never find those round drum tables where I live. I'd love it if you linked this to my party :)

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Katie...every piece you post just gets better and better. This turned out so awesome. I have one of these drum tables but I didn't know it was called that. I've been thinking about painting it and now I can see what it would look like. Thanks! Have a lovely weekend...

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

I may need to give my drum table a similar treatment ... was originally thinking of painting the whole piece, but I like the idea of leaving the top natural ...

The drum table with the white bottom and dark top is terrific. It must love it's new dress!

Thank you for linking your project to Potpourri Friday!

Stopping in from TT&J! I have an antique drum table very similar to yours that has seen better days, but I am scared to do anything to it. I think you have just alleviated some of my stress. Yours looks great!

Julie said...

Beautiful! Love the blue inside!

Jane said...

I love this! So cute! It looks amazing. The before is so dated but the after is absolutely fab.

Stopping by from M&M's!

Love it, looks fantastic! I have a similar table but I think it's a cheaper newer version, feels like laminate, but I would sure love to paint it like you did. Yours is gorgeous.


Kelly said...

I love that style table! You did a wonderful job redoing it. I know what you mean about cloudy days. Sometimes, I have to plan my day of taking pictures around the weather! It really does make a difference.

Sherry said...

That turned out beautiful! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!

Glenda @ Magnolia Bend Drive said...

I think drum tables are so pretty, and I really like your transformation. First time I've seen the white ASCP in action. Looks so great!

Vicki V @ said...

I have a table just like this and am itching to give it a makeover! I LOVE it!

Kahli said...

I could have sworn I commented on this makeover but I guess I didn't! I love how it turned out! I wish I had a table like this to makeover. Definitely love the two two look and the pop of color in the drawer!

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

What a charmer!! Love how it came out- Thanks for sharing this at Feathered Nest Friday! :)

Good Time Charlie said...

You are so good at refinishing wood! Every piece you do with the two tone just looks flawless. Thank you so much for sharing!

Ivy and Elephants said...

I can't believe this is the same table. The table was beautiful before, now it is so elegant and I love the splash of color. Gorgeous work. I would love for you to share this amazing post at our newly launched linky party. Hope you can join us.

Wow, Katie - You can take the saddest little piece of furniture & turn it into something really beautiful. I love surprises, so of course I'm delighted by the blue drawer. Thank you for linking to Fabulous Friday at Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust.

Warmly, Michelle
