Back in 2011 I posted one of my first furniture makeovers here on the blog. It was this French Provincial style side table that I found near a dumpster. I took it home, scrubbed it down, and gave it a fresh coat of white paint.
Over the years it has found its way around my apartment and eventually retired and went back into storage. You guys know I love to switch things up with the seasons so I thought it was time to bring it back in, but since it needed a new paint job I decided to give it a different look!
Normally I go with fresh whites, or bright colors, but when I saw the new Amsterdam Green from Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan I was in love and decided to try a different direction. The green is a deep, warm, vintage green that looks amazing against the gold accents I wanted.
One of the reasons I really love Chalk Paint and recommend it to those who are painting furniture for the first time is that it’s very forgiving and easy to use. It applies nicely and dries very level and fast.
For this project all I had to do was apply two coats of Amsterdam Green Chalk Paint® with a Pure Bristle Brush, no priming necessary. I like this brush. It holds a lot of paint and covers a lot of surface.
Once that was done I added some gold details and a new crystal drawer knob.
Voila! All done! Such a dramatic change and it took almost no time and effort. I’m loving the vintage feel and warmth it’s adding to this corner.
I’m really happy with the way it turned out and think it adds a really nice vibe for the season. Now what else can I paint…?
