After searching for a set of nesting tables, I was over the moon excited when this set of MCM nesting tables crossed my path!
They were in great condition structurally and only had a few minor scratches due to wear and tear in its previous life.
When I saw the pencil thin groove etched on the perimeter of each table, I knew that would be inspiration for me to do something special with the middle portion of the table. Suddenly the idea of a gingham pattern popped into my head and I was off and running…er… I mean, measuring!
This did require some math skills, (not all of them mine) and lots of taping and even more patience!
Using Chalk Paint® By Annie Sloan, I painted a base color of Pure White and then after taping the lines, I made a glaze by mixing Coco Chalk Paint® with a glazing medium and painted the lines.
After sufficient drying time, I taped again going in the opposite direction and painted with the Coco glaze mixture resulting in a gingham pattern.
I finished by painting the remainder of the table with the Coco Chalk Paint® And adding a protective layer of clear wax.
I couldn’t be happier with the result!
