Vintage Card Table

I came across a great deal on an old game table. There is a side drawer to hold cards and game pieces and the top swivels.  

 Because I paid so little for this, I decided to try new chalk paint I found at Michael's - Americana Decor Chalky Finish.

The paint is only $8.00 for 8 oz and I used a 40% coupon!

The paint works as well as Annie Sloan CP.  I didn't sand or prime this piece and gave it 2 coats (one was watered down a bit).  I still have enough to paint another piece. I used a dark wax on it to give it an antique look.  I also painted a few hydrangeas in one corner:

It sold at the gift shop in 2 weeks!

Pin It


  1. Loved the table. I bought some of the same paint. I haven't tried it yet, but it sure is a lot cheaper than Annie Sloan paint.
    I think I would have kept that cute table.

  2. That's so pretty, and I can see why it sold so quickly.

  3. Very pretty! Love the hydrangeas!

  4. Every time I see something like this, I sooo wish I was artistic. This table is lovely, but the Hydrangeas in the corner make it so unique. I love Hydrangeas, and you painted them beautifully. laurie

  5. Beautiful, Patti! I take it you would recommend this paint. : ) Love the color and your hydrangea is just lovely.
