Sleek Black Farmtable

I almost forgot to take that before picture again!

At least this way you can  see some of my other junk around this table as I was painting.

And here it is finished and at Lone Elm Antique Mall.
It didn't last long though, someone has already found it a home!

I am loving the all black.

I made my own chalk paint and used Minwax Paste Wax to seal it.

I painted four different chairs to match.

Here is a view of the table runner I had made.
I will be sure to share a few of those later.

I hope you love it as much as I do, or did!
I love to hear your comments.

Don't forget to link your thrifty finds and fabulous makeovers to the Restyled Sundays party still going on.

I am linking up to these great parties:

  1. The table is gorgeous, I need to try making my own chalk paint, save me a bunch of $$!! I love the idea of using four different chairs painted the same, I might steal that idea!

  2. Hi Ann, what a great job you did on that table. It's fabulous. Too bad you couldn't have kept it. At least it went to a good home. Thanks so much for sharing.
