Creations, Chippy Shell Side Table

I have had this table forever, it’s tired and the paint is flaking off…I know chippy is trendy but this table looked bad~

I decided to try a little chalk paint on it to spiff it up, Annie Sloan Florence

This whole project took maybe 30 minutes

I LOVE projects that don’t drag about

I used a fairly dry brush to add a layer of color to the top

A couple of places got too much paint so I just went back over them with some Annie Sloan Old White

I wasn’t too concerned about the top because I was going to use a tray on it

I heated up my glue gun and got out some bling

I started in the middle with a sand dollar and just built out both sides

Sea shells, sea glass and glass beads, all the things I used on my Beachy Bench

I just did the one end because of where this sits in the room

One side is against the couch and the other is in a high traffic area

So I just dressed up the front a little and topped it with a tray for stability and ease of use

Now it looks loved and chic, not shabby and sad 🙂

I just love 30 minute projects!

    I love it! I have 2 small end tables and a chest/coffee table in white wicker and have been looking for ideas to do something different with them. I’m re-doing in a nautical theme but with red and navy colors so your idea gives me lots to think about. Thank you!

    So creative Jenna! I love the aqua color and your addition of shells and glass! The Annie Sloan dealer I bought my paint from doesn’t have those little sample pots, what a fun way to experiment with a color without the investment.

  5. Loved and chic trumps shabby and sad every time! Well done! Still…30 minutes is too long. I am just a lazy ol’ thing!
