Let me take you back in time, about a hundred years back in time. Virginia 1913: Just imagine miles of rolling hills and beautiful historic farm houses. Farm houses with grand entrances, and impressive entrance halls. Keep your thought…Let me tell you that I have a wonderful small demi-lune entrance hall table that actually belonged in one of those historic farms! Here is a before picture:
Isn’t she lovely? Do you see the details? I see demi-lune tables once and a while, but to purchase one with so much detail is a treat! The top was replaced with a new piece of wood, but the bottom part is original. I already had a customer in mind when I bought this table, and sure enough, when I showed this table she wanted it! It had to be painted turquoise..of course!
I made my own chalk paint with some left over turquoise flat latex paint. I distressed her with a sanding sponge. ( for a light distressed look, use steel wool! ) After about two coats I gave her one coat of clear wax, and one coat of dark wax.
Here is the end result:
