I’m running a little bit behind on Market Monday. We had no internet for two days. I have some cool stuff to share and I want to introduce to you my friend’s new blog, but I was cross eyed last night and it is going to take some time to get it together. So, that will come later today. I spent all day at my friend Stacy’s house yesterday helping her finish up her dining room furniture. We were pressed for time because she has her first church small group rolling in on Wednesday. I was so happy with the way it all turned out. You can read where we began working on the table in a previous post here.

We stripped the top of the dining table, re stained it and painted out the bottom in Annie Sloan Old White. You can get Annie Sloan Chalk Paint from my other sweet friend Stacey at We distressed the paint and then used my Miss Mustard Seed’s Furniture Wax to seal it.

The buffet was done the same way as the bottom part of the table except we used Provence in Annie Sloan. I had never painted in that color so it was fun. I love some turquoise. Stacey and her girls picked out these colors and they are perfect for their fun personalities.

Here are some shots of the afters………..

Now I am praying that lives will be changed and relationships healed around that dining table in Jesus name. I am praying that the Lord shows up during those small groups and that his grace, love and mercy be poured out upon all those who enter. I am also praying that many more happy memories for this family will be made in this room!

Happy Painting,

    I have looked all over the internet for an answer to my question about using chalk paint and the clear wax, so thought I’d ask you. Used ASCP and her clear wax on some chairs and have let them sit for several months now. They are all sticky and no matter how much I rub them down/buff/brush/etc., the stickiness will NOT go away. Have I applied too much wax or would you know what I have done wrong? And is there anything that I can do to fix this problem? Thanks for any suggestions you might have for me.
    Love your site – SO many good ideas!
    Thanks –

  2. Use acetone on a rag with gloves on. It should get rid of the stickiness.
