A beachy makeover

It started as a simple, all wood side table.  Very "blah!"
 
Good bones, bad, outdated look.

Add one coat of homemade chalk paint in a crisp white tone.

Add second coat (paint dries very fast.) It's ok to have paint brush marks. I used a cheap throw away brush, it will all sand smooth.

Already better!

 
Taped off a line and handpainted a Number 3.

I added thick rope and the top resembles a lifesavers paint.
Hand sanded to look worn and then clear waxed to add shine and luster.
I have a new wax that is scented lemon verbena. I love this--it adds a pretty, subtle scent.

Table is available for sale. It stands 20 in tall, and 12 in top.  Perfect for your side table for coffee or tea. 
$30.00
Located in Scottdale, but willing to meet.
