Before our last vacation, I decided it was the perfect time to finally repaint our kitchen table. I mean who wouldn’t paint instead of pack? Do you do that too? Find other things to do besides the thing you are suppose to do?
There was actually some logic behind it. Painting it and leaving it for a week, would give it time to cure. See I wasn’t completely avoiding my packing duties. It made perfect sense.
The plan was to do a grey driftwood look to tie it into my family room better. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen and Old White.
First, I did a dry brush of the French Linen thinking that would be enough, but it wasn’t.
Then, I added Old White mixed with water. Too white.
So I did a French Linen water wash over that. Much better.
Loved how it turned out!
Doesn’t work in the room. Something’s just not right.
Is it the wrong grey with this red? The wrong red with this grey?
Or are the black chairs not meshing quite right with new look?
It may just be the wrong color for the table altogether.
I sat on it for a week to see if I’d change my mind.
But no, it’s just not doing it for me.
paint chairs white or back to all black or repaint table
repaint table – white/cream, all chairs black
Every time I see black and white spaces, I adore them, so why was I straying away from that? Go with it. Turns out, I need to repaint anyhow because I only did a haphazard wax job before we left and there are already scrapes and scratches.
Once this cast is off, that will be my first project! Somehow, I think you’ll be hearing that a lot from me. We’ll see what I actually tackle first.
