Angie from The Painted Piano is joining us for her very first Country Chic Paint blog post today! She refurbished this simple and sophisticated table with Cobblestone and white wax.

Welcome! I’m Angie from The Painted Piano, and I’m thrilled to be a new member of the 2016 Country Chic Paint Blog Squad!

Today I’m here to show you a little side table I painted for my own home.

Before I painted it, this Craigslist find was dark brown with a gold edge. It needed a makeover…bad!

Aside from wiping it down, I didn’t do a thing to prep this table for paint! I just went for it, and I love how it turned out. Country Chic Paint’s Cobblestone was the perfect gray to match the cool tones in my family room. As I was painting it, I made sure not be too careful. I actually didn’t want a perfectly smooth finish, because I knew I’d be using white wax on it for a white-washed look at the end. When the paint dried, I sanded down the edges to distress it a bit, and then I was ready for the wax.

Applying the wax was so easy! I used a brush to apply it, and then I wiped it right off. Simple! I made sure to really get the wax in all of the little grooves and crevices that were created by my brush strokes. That’s where the wax really settles in and gives the finish some dimension. I love how the wax highlighted some of the imperfections in the table and my paint job, giving it interest and depth.

With a fresh coat of paint and a little white wax, this table looks MUCH better in my home!

Angie {The Painted Piano}

Hi there! My name is Angie. I’m primarily a wife and mom, but I’m also proud to be the owner of The Painted Piano. With four kids, it would be easy to blame the messes around the house on my kids, but usually it’s just me and another one of my projects! One of the first pieces I ever painted was my 1905 upright piano. Anyone who came into my house would stop in their tracks and say, “WOW! You painted your piano turquoise!” and The Painted Piano was born. Getting my hands dirty and giving old, outdated furniture a second chance gets me excited!
