While shopping at the Mad Pottery for my plants, I discovered that they have a consignment corner. I found this little treasure there:

So I used my Annie Sloan’s Cream Chalk paint on it. Applied two coats and waxed with Minwax.

And I decided to put a “bird on it”,

actually two birds!  After everything dried, I took it outside sanded it and applied the wax.

I am happy with the way it turned out!  I put it right to use:

And if you haven’t read The Noticer, you should, it’s a great quick read about perspective.


OK, enough pictures!  Hope you enjoyed!

Check out the paint party at Censational Girl!

    3. I love what you did with the table. The birds are really sweet. I’m so excited to see if I can do some of these things. Is the chalk paint oil or latex? Do you always use a brush or spray? I’ve done some furniture painting but I really am looking to learning more from your blog. I’d love to get a business going in Indy.

    4. Glad you found my party. I love this table, I have the very same bird stencil and I have that color chalk paint. Thanks for joining my newbie party. I signed on as a new friend and hope you do the same.

    5. LOVE it !! Did a little painting today myself the more I use the chalk paint the more I love it.. Are you back in the boro or did I read you are in bama ?
      Hope you had a Safe fun trip.

    6. This table turned out so great! I totally love the birds. I have a can of cream chalk paint waiting for me to get my nerve up. I want to paint a big TV cabinet and I’m a little intimidated! I just need to go for it…hope you have a great weekend! ~Ann
