A while back I tried out a new brand of paint that I picked up at Home Depot in the reject pile. It was only $2.00 and it was a great color of grey! Awesome right? Wrong! I believe in second chances so even though I didn’t like it the first time I tried it, I thought I would give it one more try before tossing it out. Anyway…I made a dose of my homemade chalk paint and applied it to these old, outdated end tables I acquired several months ago. They looked beautiful. When they were completely dry I started applying a layer of white. That’s when the fun began. The grey underneath started to peel. Now if I was using Milk Paint ~ Yay!!! That’s what I would have wanted, but I had other plans for these. Oh well, plans change and we need to be flexible right? Suddenly I knew this set of end tables would now have to go in a whole other direction! They are now my super, duper, chippy tables! It’s OK…I still love ‘em! My husband likes the hidden drawer feature. There isn’t a knob so you can’t tell there is actually a drawer. I bought a pair of cute little knobs to put on them but he thinks I’ll ruin them. (Silly Man) So I’m going to leave them be, for the moment! I have another vintage market coming up in November and I’ve heard for this market the more rustic the better, so these should be in demand.
