  1. Clean your piece of furniture with warm water and vinegar
  2. Paint 1 to 2 coats with chalk based paint (we used Maison Blanche Chloe)
  3. Sand lightly to distress (optional)
  4. Finish with dark wax or clear coat of your choice

We used the dark antique wax made by Maison Blanche, as you can see, it looks very dark going on. Once dry and buffed it created the perfect antique tone that we were going for.

I waxed half to show you the difference. After it dries completely, it’s a lot more subtle and gets nicely into the groves for an aged look while protecting the paint.

  3. Looks great! I picked up a similar coffee table at a yard sale a few weeks ago and wasn’t sure what to do with it. I’m planning to sell it at a July 16 market and think that this look may be one that people will like. Thanks for the inspiration!
