{ Vintage Music Sheet Table }

Chalk Paint™
When Annie Sloan Unfolded asked me which 2 paint colors I wanted them to send me I knew right away.

I'm on a neutral kick lately so, French Linen and Versailles would be perfect.

I completely transformed my vintage side table with Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan.

It was a simple table that I've had for a while. I first gave the table a thin coat of French Linen. I sanded it a little when it was dry because I wanted to have a super smooth finish when I was done. (I normally don't sand between coats, but it makes a HUGE difference
French Linen is a beautiful color. It's rich and soft all at the same time. Very much like a creamy coffee, or a cup of hot chocolate kind of color.

After the second coat dried, I rubbed clear soft wax all over the legs of the table.
I added some music sheets with modge podge to the top of the table.

I layered the top with sheet music 'til it was covered.

 I attached a vintage fridge shelf to the bottom of the table for additional shelving. It's super cute!

I also used Annie Sloan Versailles as an accent color for another project.
Of course, I'm too impatient to take a before photo, but believe me the transformation is amazing.
(The base coat is French Linen again)
Here's the finished product.

Thanks to Annie Sloan Unfolded for supplying me with these two colors and a can of clear soft wax.
