I bought this table for $4.00 at one of my favorite thrift stores. It was full of missing chunks of wood on the edges, looks like someone loved to vacuum rather quickly. I sanded down the sides to make the table useful.Here is the table after the paint, gold leaf wax and paste wax job. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures of the table prior to the excitement of trying my new paint.
I really love the gold leaf wax on the upper edge of the table. Gives the table a very "French" look. I have to say that I am in love with this paint and I probably will not go back to my homemade paint, even though it worked great, as well. I used less than 1/4 of the Annie Sloan quart, even with two coats. It distresses really easily, my homemade paint did not.
I loved this paint so much that I went back to the store the following day and bought two more quarts (different colors, of course). This store is not close - about an hour and a quarter drive. If you are hesitating to try this paint because of the price - sell one of your masterpieces with the goal in mind of using the proceeds to try Annie Sloan chalk paint. I believe that you will not be disappointed!
