We received this table as a wedding gift nearly 20 years ago. Yup, 20 years. We are that old. Ten moves later (that’s an average of one move every two years – but hey, who’s counting?), it is still kicking around. But, it has seen better days.
It’s nothing a slap of chalk paint can’t fix! I mix:
one part paint (I used a latex semi-gloss)
one part Plaster of Paris,
and add just enough water so that its consistency becomes like pancake batter.
Paint, gently sand, and voila! It’s finished.
