Coastal Side Table- A Thrifty Make-over

What says "beachy" more than that aged turquoise blue 
combined with a shabby style white wash?

 I am always drawn to these summer colors and
until now I never knew how to achieve that look in furniture.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint makes it simple.


I saw this cute end table at a local re-sale store. 
{it did not look very cute then, but I saw its potential}

Here's is what this table looked like before:
 A worn thrift store bargain begging to be made beautiful.
 No sanding, no prepping--
just a quick coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (R) in Old White
Followed by a coat of Duck Egg Blue on the top.
 Using painters tape--I taped off a square on the top,
over the dry Old White 
before I applied the blue coat.
Once dry I removed the tape, 
and gently sanded with super fine paper
 on the legs which brought out the wood underneath...
 Then I sealed with Annie Sloan Clear wax and buffed.

Voila! a great coastal shabby chic side table!
You'll never look at worn out furniture the same way again!
