Duck Egg Painted Entry Table

If you read my post yesterday, you know I’ve been moving a few pieces of furniture around the house to try and give my favorite spaces a fresh look.  Just to recap, it started when the entry went from this


to this


and the breakfast area went from this


to this

Weatherwood Stained Cabinet - The Crowned Goat - 060915-2

to this

Three Drawer Dresser Quick Makeover - The Crowned Goat - 060915-10

it left this solid oak entry table as the last piece standing.  I’ve had it for a few years now and surprisingly it has never been painted.  Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for more furniture painted in Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg.  We’re in the beginning of what promises to be a busy tourist season at The Pickers Market and this table will be a perfect addition to my booth.


I created a custom mix using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg and Pure White.


I just mix the colors in a plastic cup adding one color and then the other until I get the shade I envision.  If the paint is too thick, I add a little bit of water to help thin out the consistency.  This step really depends on how much paint you use and your personal preference.  Then I take a spoon, stir the mixture really well and get to painting.


Once I finished with this piece, I sealed with clear furniture paste wax. Are these legs awesome or what?


Of course, I had to distress it just a little.


I picked up this drawing of the Mississippi Queen a few weeks ago.  I can’t imagine how much work must have gone into this piece of art.


I picked up this lamp a few weeks ago too.  It’s definitely chipping in all of the right places.  I may keep this one but I’ll have to find just the right spot for it first.


I can’t wait to get this in my booth space!

See you guys back here tomorrow.  I went shopping with my Mom recently and I can’t wait to show you all of the goodies we picked up.

Many blessings,

      It’s definitely a popular color, Angie, I think it’s because it reminds people of the water and what could be more peaceful than that! Hugs to you to lady, coco
