Thank You Annie Sloan...I'm In Love With Your Paint

Oh yes...thank you Annie for making such a wonderful product...this stuff really rocks!!! My first victim was an old vintage mirror (will share her with ya later) I'm sharing victim old sewing machine table. I have had this table for many years now and have used it in several different locations here in my nest...I even let my sister use it for awhile...ahhhh how sweet of me. Since Haley moved out of our cottage and we gave her some of our furniture...I needed something to hold our OLD TV ( don't laugh...we still have some really OLD TV's around here) flat screens for us just yet...but I'm thinking really hard on that subject and just maybe in the next few months we will break down and buy one...yippee!! This table is just the right size for our TV...all she needed was a touch up paint job and she was ready to go. Pulled out some paris grey paint...clear wax and dark wax...then 30 minutes later she was all done...fastest paint job ever!!! Mr.CC could hardly believe it...oh my honey...this stuff is awesome...what a beautiful look...he loved it and I do too. If you haven't tried this paint yourself a favor and try's really neat.
                                        Hope you have a wonderful
                                           weekend and thanks for
                                                   coming by,
                              My sweet friend Lauren is having a
                                AS Chalk Paint Giveaway...hop
                                over and enter to win this great
                               Click will take you to her
                                 blog...My Wonderfully Made!

                                   She was getting a tad bit yellow!
                                        Just a little peek of victim #1
                                               in the background.
                              Now look how good she looks up against
                                                 those walls!!!
                                                 Lovin' this look!!!
                                       Maybe one day...she will be
                                      used as an accent table again.

                                            Victim end tables.
                                             Started them today, but
                                              putting away my paint
                                              brushes until Monday,
                                                 so I can spend the
                                                 weekend in Auburn
                                                 with my baby girl.
                                              Looking forward to our
                                                 two night slumber

laxsupermom said...

The table looks fantastic! I have an old sewing table that has been ignored for too long. I really need to get my hands on some of that chalk paint. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend!

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

I love how it came out!! Which color did you paint on first? ASCP is the best!!

Tammy at Tammy Loves Dishes said...

I have just got to get some AS paint! Can't wait to see the reveal on the other projects.

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Hi Linda, your sewing machine table turned out beautifully! Love it. I have my grandmother's old Singer with the machine still inside. Can't decide what to do....hmmmm, lots of inspiration! Linda p.s. We don't have any flat screen TVs either. Yet.

michelle said...

Love the paint and I love your tables!! The sewing machine table is just gorgeous!
Have a great weekend!

scrapmebaby said...

And I am picking up my very first order of ASCP tonight!! Very exciting...I have a pair of "antique" end tables (that are super old but not fab quality) so I am dying to know if this works as well as everyone says!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Linda, The sewing machine table turned out great. Thanks for joining the Open House party and I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your daughter.

That sewing machine table came out great! A two day mom/daughter slumber party sounds great. Enjoy! Stop by for a giveaway when you get back.

Betsy said...

I love what you did with the table, the whole process sounds so easy. I'm really looking forward to getting my paint and starting on my first volunteer.
Have a great weekend with your daughter.

WOW! What a transformation. Oh you give me hope that I can do this myself one day!!!! Really, WOW. I'm bookmarking so I can remember this!!

I love transformations! I just turned my secretary into a bar area in my dining room. I really hope you'll stop by and check it out:

See you soon, I hope!

Pamela said...

It is fab isn't it Linda!? The sewing table turned out gorgeous!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

LOVE the sewing table re-do! Half an hour -- that's a record I'm sure for such a beautiful project! We hardly watch T.V. so about a year ago we got just a 19" computer monitor (LCD?)for our living room. Some people think it's weird but first of all, our living room is SMALL so we didn't want the T.V. to be a focal point and second, like I said, we're not big T.V. watchers.

A Cottage Muse said...

Looks great Linda!
Hope you are having fun at the slumber party!

Sylvia said...

I cant wait until an Annie Sloan paint store opens in our area...I am dying to try it!!!
