Antiqued chalk paint end table - Paris graphic image

This week I am loving earth tones. Muted greens, greys, cement, it!

Another Hermanus junky find. I really found some fun stuff on our trip there! I don't have a very clear shot of the before, so I am jumping right in and showing you the finished table!! This darling has lovely curvy legs and a scrolly top!!

I really have to take better!!

Like the rooster milking stool, I used the colour called Cement Wash by Plascon mixed with plaster of paris for that chalky paint effect! I then transferred the Paris graphic using the Modge Podge method! I grabbed this graphic from Karen The Graphics Fairy.
I distressed the table in all the right places, and then rubbed in mahogany wood stain for the antiqued effect! create a -new!


  1. This turned out great. Love the distressing - it looks really natural. Thanks for linking up to That's The Ticket Blog Hop.

  2. As usual, another fabulous redo! Love the color!

  3. Just beautiful! Love it. How much plaster of paris do you add to your paint?

  4. You've done a great job - I love the distressing on the table and the graphic. I saw your table at Knick of Time where I had a similar item. You should link up to Debbiedos as she has a party every Monday for blogs with less than 100 followers. There is a button on my sidebar.

  5. Very pretty! The design suits the shape of the table really nicely. New follower!

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment. Yes the leaves really compliment the scrolly edge of the table. Love your work are very talented! I just followed you back:o)

  6. Sure wish I could find such great tables to refinish. Love everything you did on that table. The curvy legs are great and the top with the transfer. You'd be hard to match. Happy days Sumaya
