The table legs got Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I want to age and distress the legs, but not until I have the whole table done.
The rest of the table is still buried in the garage, so the aging will have to wait until I get down to the top.
It seems everything I've had for a while is that ugly orangish brown wood. I think adding any color of paint improves furniture and cabinets right away.
Here's a final shot of the finished table legs. I love the shape of them and like that they're nice and sturdy. I got this table and six matching chairs for a total of $75.00. I think the next project will be the table top and the chairs. First it will complete the dining set, and second, it will greatly reduce the pile in the garage.
The little orange box was dirt cheap at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. It had some dings and, even at Halloween time, that orange would be out of place.
I taped it before I painted, but if I had it to do again I would skip the taping and just paint the box inside and out. The distressing on the box makes it look like it hasn't been painted in spots, but it's just the distressing.
The Annie Sloan French Gray Chalk Paint looks almost blue in person. I think I'll mix up my own combination to make it grayer and less blue in the future.
