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Good bones, bad, outdated look.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. 
Located in Scottdale, but willing to meet.
