Paint Day Transformations.....oh my!

The weather for Spring Break was just great! It gave us lots of sunshine to get out and paint. The first photos are of the projects before we did our magic!
This coffee table was a Goodwill score for Helen.

Another Helen project

Helen's son Mark Allen got this coffee table for free from a friend. 

Pam picked this table up  somewhere. She was painting the drawer before I could get a picture!

This was  my Goodwill find. It appeared to have had doors or something on the front at one time. It was solid wood and very sturdy.

This was my first attempt at painting a table. This one was a dark pine one with two leaves from Pottery Barn. The pine was dated and just needed refreshing.

Here is the coffee table. It was painted with County White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint with a Provence stencil. Some gilding wax in King's gold just added the right touch! This will be added to Helen's new scrap room.

Pam's cute Emperor's Silk table with Graphite drawer and French Linen handle will be a great addition to her family's hunting retreat.

The free table is now bright and new! Country Gray with a little dark wax.
 The tall wine rack got a few adjustments and several coats
of Krylon white gloss spray paint. 
 Here's the table now!  It was difficult to get a good photo while out in the garage.
I used ASCP in French Linen. Clear then dark wax. Then several more coats of clear wax. A little distressing and some of the gold gilding wax and it is just gorgeous. Everyone who came wanted it! But the lucky person is Carol's son Ben and his fiance', Kara.

 Here is the small table I found at Goodwill. I added some molding and decorative trim just below the top. 

The top was in good shape so I brushed on a coat of dark stain. Then used a die cut piece of scrapbook paper to add a stencil.
This is going to be a great place to display my cookbooks
(not like I use them or anything) ha ha!

This table is my next project. It belonged to my mom and I actually have two almost just alike. The other belonged to Bob's mom. I know you've seen these everywhere. I am making it really pretty.
Thanks for visiting!! I love comments and for you to share my blog with others. On occasion there will be some items for sale so watch for those. Also if you have a piece of furniture you need transformed, you know who to call!!
