~ Paris Grey ~
(i love you)
I painted the oak coffee table
I found at a flea market for $20 in this Chalk Paint pale grey color.
What a transformation!
After painting the coffee table, a large tray, a suitcase and a frame
there is still over half a quart left
(for more projects I'm working on...)
I've applied some coats of wax
I saw on another blog someone used
Johnson's Paste Wax instead of the more expensive chalk paint wax.
On the tray I experimented with adding some dark grey wood stain
mixed into the last layer of wax.
I still need to do the distressing, sanding, chipping the paint.
It's hard for me to get past the thought of 'ruining' a good paint job!
... but I love the look when others do it, so I'm going to do it.
really. soon. maybe.
I was hesitant to buy this paint which costs $39 for a quart.
But I'm glad I did, it covers so nicely in just one coat
and requires no sanding or priming!
I found this tray (formerly a table I think) at a yard sale for $3.
