Dining Table & Chairs Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Posted on April 22,2013 by Jennifer

Dining Table and Chairs makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Duck Egg Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

This past weekend I got a “bee in my bonnet” about my dining area and decided to tackle it! Do you sometimes just get that “enough is enough” feeling? The thing that I love so much about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is that you can decide to start a project like this and actually accomplish it in a day. Painting this table took me roughly a couple of hours and the chairs took about the same amount of time. I also recovered the chair cushions and will share that project with you on Wednesday!

Dining Table and Chairs makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Duck Egg Annie Sloan Chalk PaintI had already painted this table once several years ago. It was one of the most exhausting painting experiences of my life – long before being introduced to the magical Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! – this table was a wood tone which I painted black. I liked the black for a while but I’ve grown tired of it and I’m in love with light colors and the black was just not working for me now…

Table Before painting with Annie Sloan Chalk PaintPlus, I often find myself wanting a white table background for photos and was always trying to cover this one but wasn’t happy keeping a cloth on it all the time – with a two-year-old I prefer a more “wipeable” surface, you fellow mommies know how that is! See all the toys in the background – yeah, we’re in here a lot so this table needs to be functional not just pretty :-)

I painted the top of the table with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and I painted the base and chairs with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg. I like how the Duck Egg is similar but not the same as the ASCP Provence I have in the room. I like things matching but not too matchy-matchy. We’re walking the line here….

This space isn’t “finished” (is a space EVER?) but it’s definitely getting closer to matching the vision in my head!

I love this Bee Skep shaped plate cover that I found at Rockfish Gap Store. I love bee skeps and think this just might be the beginnings of a collection… we’ll see! This one was handmade in the Philippines.

With the bee skep (which is sitting atop a white cake pedestal from World Market) are a grouping of succulents in mixed containers and two figurines from the new Urban Farmhouse Collection at Target. You can read more about the artichoke one here.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of my newly updated dining area!! I’m adding this post to my new “Home Tour” page where you can keep up with what’s happening in the rooms of my home.

**Like my wall color? I get asked about it a lot. It’s a custom color from Benjamin Moore – I share the “recipe” for it at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!

I’m sharing this project at Monday-Funday on Uncommon Designs, Home Stories A to Z, and Funky Junk Interiors!

      > Hi Donna! Thanks for your note – I used less than 1/4 of a can for both the table and chairs – this paint is so wonderful it just goes and goes and goes!! I’m not sure separately what it was but not much. I get lots and lots of projects out of one can of ASCP. Hope this helps! ~Jennifer

I used to always buy hunt scene items. I wish I had gotten the white trophy cups from Target when they had them! Can’t find them now. And I think your Christmas tree is my favorite one ever!

    Did you just paint right on top of the old paint? Did you sand the first time you painted it? Is the paint durable enough to withstand actual use without putting a clearcoat or something on it to protect it?

    My SIL has a similar table (hand me down from us!) and I just told her this was going to be our summer project because I’ve never been a fan of that table- even with it being at her house!

      > Hi Angel, Yes, I just painted right over the old paint – that’s the beauty of ASCP you can paint right over practically anything. I like a slightly distressed look so I didn’t do any sanding. If you prefer a more smooth surface then you could lightly sand. I also used ASCP clear wax over the paint. I highly recommend you use some kind of wax with this paint. I am watching it to see how it holds up but so far so good. I’ve painted lots of other pieces in my house that have done really well but they don’t get wiped down as much as a dining table obviously does. I may need to apply another coat of wax at some point but I’m expecting that to be the only maintenance it will need (and waxing is very simple so that’s not a big deal to me). I’ll keep you all posted! ;-)

        > Thanks Jennifer.
        Can you explain the wax? Do you “paint” it on or rub it in (I’m curious about the consistency since when I hear “wax”, I think of candles!)? Does it change the look of the paint at all?

        Reply

        • April 25, 2013 at 11:02 am, Jennifer said:

          > This is a soft wax that you apply with a round brush although you could probably use something else but Annie Sloan recommends a brush so that’s what I do. It comes in a can. There is a clear wax and a dark wax. The clear wax doesn’t change the color at all. The dark wax is wonderful for giving your piece a more aged “patina”. Try it, I bet you’ll love it!!

    Hi JC! ASCP is “Annie Sloan Chalk Paint” – it is the easiest, most fun paint to use especially because it will cover almost any surface and doesn’t require any stripping or sanding before beginning so you get to the “fun” part of a project right away.

    I don’t have a tutorial on how I did this table but you can read a tutorial on me painting with it on this post: http://celebratingeverydaylife.com/how-to-paint-with-annie-sloan-chalk-paint-a-tutorial/

    I will try to do a video tutorial on my next project ~ I have lots more painting to do in my house :-)

    I hope you’ll give ASCP a try! I think you’ll like it!! Enjoy!!

    Your table is beautiful and your color choice/combination is so perfect! Thank you for listing the colors. I use AS but have stayed with Old White, Pure White & Graphite. I did play around with Old Violet and dark wax on a frame in preparation to help with a buffet for my daughter, its a beauticul color too…I’m thinking they all are! Best thing is they all mix to make so many other colors! Duck egg is such a soft color I’ll be painting something with it soon! Have a great weekend

    I agree with all the other comments, totally gorgeous! I am currently painting a round pedastal kitchen table old white and considering doing Provence on the bottom. I didn’t see any Provence in your picture that you referenced. Could you point it out for me? Also, I’m reconsidering the color and wonder if a little old white mixed in might mimic duck egg. What are your creative eye/designer opinions? :-)

      > Hi Allison, Thank you for sweet comments. In the first photo the hutch in the background on the right side of the photo is painted in Provence. In the second photo, the interior back wall of mu china hutch and the mirror hanging to the left of it are both painted with Provence. Yes, I think you may be able to get a similar color by mixing old white and duck egg. I think it would be a beautiful combo! Good luck with your project!!

    Could you also share if you used the Annie Sloan round paint brush on the woven back of the chairs? I have been struggling about my choice of brushes, which Is usually a flat 2 or 3 inch chip brush (aka cheap brush).

      > I used a regular paint brush for painting the chairs and reserve my round brushes strictly for applying wax. I never use them for paint. I’m not sure what the “pros” would say but those round brushes were pricey so I like to “baby” them as much as possible so that I will have them for a looooong time :-)

I have a dining table very similar to yours that I also have been wanting to paint with ASCP – I just purchased it for the first time :-) – Since the table is black did you prime or sand off the black? or did you just start painting with Old White? (I’m also using Old White) If so, how many coats did you have to use so the black does not show through? I’m super nervous and super excited to start this project! My first major DIY!!

        I read that if you have a white painted surface you want to use polycrylic(water base) because it will not turn a yellowish tint that the acrylic one does with time.

My table is used all day long by my family and I have two toddler boys who are super rough and destructive. I was wondering if you ended up coating it with the poly? If so, how is it holding up and which brand did you use? I am so nervous to ruin my table and not sure the wax can handle the daily abuse without me having to do a lot of maintenance. Any advice is appreciated!

      > Hi Gwen, The table is holding up pretty well. I did not add a sealer over top. The wax is ok – I spoke to a more seasoned painter than myself and she says that she just periodically re-coats her table. I would definitely say that this is a more “high-maintenance” color choice. It’s pretty but it shows every crumb and drip… I’m probably not going to stick with this look for too long because with a 2 year old, it’s a bit much for me to keep up with (we’re on the let’s color on the furniture stage!!). A slightly darker shade might be a little friendly for everyday wear…

    Thank you for the honest feedback over time. I was this close to running out to redo a table and chairs ala your masterpiece. Thankfully, the stores don’t open until 11 on Sunday. I took the time to read to the comments. Going to reassess the color choice.

    Hi. The table is beautiful. Nice color combo. I inherited a piano from my in-laws that I want to paint white. I am going to use the ASCP, but am torn between the white and old white. The old white color swatch on Annie’s website looks really yellow, but it looks like a very soft white on your table. Is the color in your photo accurate? I’m afraid the pure white will be too whittle and the old white will be too yellow. Can you please help me by describing the old white? Is it like the “white” at pottery barn- not a bright white but a little off white? Your help would be very helpful! Thanks!

      > Hi Donna, Thanks so much! Old White is definitely more creamy than pure white – most ASCP dealers sell small samples of the paint and I would highly recommend you get one of each white to play with – you may even want to blend the two to create your perfect white – I mix paints all the time, it’s fun to make your very own concoction. On this table though I didn’t mix anything. The waxes will also effect the finished color too- dark wax will definitely add yellow. There are new “white waxes” which may be a good solution for you too. Enjoy your makeover!!

I just wondered how the wax was holding up & the durability of the paint & wax. We’ve a 5yr old & use it everyday, so our table gets alot of traffic! We spoke to a stockist today & said maybe not to use it got the top as my husband isn’t keen on the worn look! Cheers Charlotte

      Hi Charlotte, Thanks for your note! If your husband isn’t keen on the worn look then I would encourage you to go a different route. The white/ivory top does show quite a bit of wear. Perhaps you could keep the wood stain top and just paint your base or go with a dark paint instead? The light color just tends to show everything! Good luck with your project!!!

    Hi Jennifer thanks for getting back to me. Yes that’s what the guy in the shop said. We’ll maybe have to look at other options for the top & also use something like polyurethane to seal it! Thanks for your help. Cheers Charlotte ;-)
