Always Never Done: Chippy ∙ Chalk Paint ∙ Entry Table

Hello Friends! How has everyone been? I have been sick for the past few days with some sort of upper respiratory virus. A little rest and some antibiotics did the job but needless to say, it stank sitting on the couch doing nothing, especially when you have projects staring at you saying “please help me, work on me next.” So this little project was calling out my name while I sat on the couch with tissues and stared back at it.

I bought this cute little lovely because she had such beautiful long shapely legs. This is how I describe my furniture folks. If it’s got a nice pair a legs, it’s comin’ home with me! Furniture…focus!

The first thing I had to do was figure out how to get that chipping wood off the top. I ended up taking a flat head screw driver and getting under the loose part of the layer and pulling it up as I went. It came off pretty easily.
