White Coffee Table

I purchased this coffee table at a barn sale.

This coffee table was painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White, distressed and buffed with the clear Soft Wax.

I think ornate tables painted in a simple white are lovely.

The top was stripped and stained with Minwax in Dark Walnut.  I'm not a big fan of veneer, but this top has a beautiful pattern, which is in great condition.

The before with the top stripped.
