Chalk Paint® decorative paint || FRENCH LINEN side tables

I often don't take the time to take pictures of spaces I have helped design, or custom painting I do for customers.  When it's my own house and my own painting projects, I can take the time to take pictures while the girls are playing or napping.  At this stage in my life, it's just more convenient to take pictures of my own projects!  However, I painted these sweet little side tables for a customer and it was easy to bring them into my home and snap a few photos!

The side tables were in really good shape.  They belonged to my customer's Grandmother.  They mean a lot to her and she wants to keep them, just update them a bit with paint.

I painted these little cuties with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.  I used the color French Linen, lightly distressed the edges, sealed the sides with clear wax and sealed the top with Annie Sloan lacquer.  I antiqued the tables with a small amount of dark wax, put the existing hardware back on and packaged up care instructions with a sample of clear wax for my customer to take home.

I hope she enjoys these little tables for years to come!
