Love how this pretty little thing turned out!  I painted this table/plant stand in Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint. Then I made a custom pink adding just a bit of Primer Red Chalk Paint to the Old White and gave it a second coat with that.  It's a very nice pink!  Then using the Old White, I stenciled a pretty cherry blossom stencil onto the top.  LOVE IT!  Next of course it was time to distress by sanding.

I then gave it a coat of clear wax and didn't get back to it till the next day!  Before buffing, gave it a coat of dark wax, paying attention that it hung in the crevices, nooks, and crannies.  After it dried, gave it a good buffing for that beautiful sheen!

Thought this would make a perfect Valentine gift for that special someone!  Whatever the case, after I took it to my booth at the Georgetown Ky Peddler's Mall, it was gone in less than a week!  :)

Thanks again Kelly. I'm not sure I know how to paint and "not" distress, lol! Love the look so much.

This table is so sweet - I love the pink with the beautiful tree graphic. It would be precious in a little girl's room.
