"at the BEACH" shabby chic coffee talbe

 Man oh man, we are having some UNSEASONABLY warm weather here in
Michigan, and it got me all fast forwarding to Summer. :)
So when I was trying to decide what to do with my cute little table from
Goodwill that my sweet friend Annie snagged me, I thought of just the thing..

You can see it was a decent table but it HAD SEEN ITS DAY!  It was beat up and dirty.
So I whipped up some HOME MADE CHALK PAINT. (you can find the original post HERE)

I bleached and scrubbed the legs to give them a distressed look and then painted the top
a really pretty pale sea glass blue.

She looks good just like this..but you know me...can't have anything PLAIN! :)

So I thought, what better than "at the Beach"  So I drew it on and used my Krink pen to outline and
filled it in with my acrylic white paint. (don't forget the HUGE giveaway for the krink pens is open until March 24, you can enter HERE)   When it was dry I distressed the top and sprayed some poly on to protect the paint. I can just see her sitting in a cottage somewhere on the beach of Lake Michigan.
To bad I don't have a cottage..:)
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, and as always, Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
