Another Annie Sloan Project…

Last summer when making over the covered patio, I picked up this fantastic side table to use outdoors between my lounge chairs where the flagstone is. Loving the cheerful aqua color, don’t you? ….and it certainly looked lovely and was a perfect fit for out there!

imageBut after buying the bird cage this past weekend I just posted about  you – I needed a low table to set that darling cage for inside my home.  001So I decided to transform this little table into something for indoors.  it had become a little sun warped and chippy from the elements outdoors – 002which made it all the more charming. I hosed it off and wiped it down and after drying in the sunshine for a bit, I did a light sanding to remove the chippy aqua paint.

012Using what was left over from the desk and dog bed for the Guest Suite, I repainted using the Annie Sloan “old white” chalk paint that I bought from Hayley’s Cottage. it turned out beautifully!

It looks as though this all meant to be here! makes such a statement in the room don’t you think?

I am loving the statement it makes in the room.

What a perfect table for the birdcage. I liked it in blue and it looks great in white, too! I have yet to try the ASCP but will get around to it one of these days! Great job, Tracie!

Wow! Lovely table. From outdoor to indoors. I think its much nicer that its indoors. It suits in the interior and with the bird cage.
