For those of you who follow me on Facebook you might remember the Facebook Live video I did where I was trying to grey wash the top of a round table for my sunroom. Well first, the video was a complete disaster! To start off it was sideways which I didn’t know until too late, then I didn’t have a clean paint brush so I was using one of those tiny sponge brushes and it just wasn’t working.
SoI stopped the video, I cleaned out an actual paint brush, and continued to work on the table.
So if you didn’t pop over to see the video here this what I started with: Top was stained and the bottom was black.
I painted the bottom with Valspar’s Chalky Finish paint in white.
For the top I thinned out Valspar’s Chalky Finish paint in Woolen Stockings. I love this color I used it on the end tables in this room and also on our coffee table in our family room.
It wasn’t the grey washed look I was going for but I still ended up loving it!
Since I had thinned out the paint, it was thin enough that you can still see the grain of the wood which is what I wanted.
In my last post I talked about finding pieces lately that I have been looking for, for awhile. This is one of them. I needed a certain size, and since I just wanted to paint it, it didn’t need to be in great shape. I just wanted it under $50. I scored this table for $40 it was in great shape so win for me!
We can now eat a meal, play some games, or I can even get some work done in my favorite room in the house!
I love this little cozy corner.

Where did you get the chairs? Manufacturer? Brand? They are beautiful!

Thank you Shannon! They're actually old office chairs and my Mom recovered them for me!

Love what you've done by thinning the paint for the top and letting the grain show through. Very nice addition to your sunroom.
