Last week I bought an oak drop leaf table at the regional market:
I tried Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint for the first time.
I purchased this paint at Michael's and the table needed 3-4 coats. I was not pleased with the paint, BUT….
...I LOVED the Americana Decor Soft Touch Varnish I used to finish off the project!
I used an old graphic from Graphic Fairy in the center. I reversed the image on paper, printed it, dampened the paper in sections and rubbed the pattern onto the surface using the round end of a Sharpie marker. I then touched up areas with grey paint to highlight areas.
What I like best is that this table can serve as a sofa table or a kitchen table in an apartment! A really unique piece!
