Cheryl created this stunning treasure with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor’s Silk Red.
She found this piece at a garage sale for under $30. It began life as a plain wood chest before she transformed it into the beauty it is now.
Here is the work in progress. She added Mackenzie-Child’s Courtly Check tissue paper in the recessed areas on the sides and front. Awesome idea!
I love the mixture of different hardware: black pulls on the top drawer and decorative knobs below. Dark wax finishes the piece with a vintage patina. We are definitely in love with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. More postings about future projects to come!
Cheryl recently introduced me to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. She told me it is great because it requires no sanding or priming prior to painting. I was intrigued, so after researching and watching tutorials about the paint brand, I set out on a hunt for this paint.
I found a local retailer in Nashville who carries the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint: House of Stella. The sales staff was extremely helpful and gave me lots of tips to help with my project. I purchased a quart of Annie Sloan Duck Egg and French Linen paint, and 1 can each of the clear and dark wax.
Here is a small table that I had in my garage, waiting for a DIY project. It was a perfect guinea pig for my first try with this paint.
I painted the base in French Linen and the top in Duck Egg. After the paint dried, which took less than 30 minutes, I applied one coat of clear wax. When it dried, I buffed it and then lightly sanded the places that I wanted to look “age-worn.” Then I applied one coat of dark wax.
The dark wax is the secret to giving the piece a vintage look. Here is a picture showing the top with only clear wax on the left, and after dark wax was added on the right. I love the way the dark wax “ages” the paint.
My little “vintage” table looks right at home in my family room. This project took just a few hours from start to finish. My kind of quick DIY!

I’ve become a fan of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and am hunting for my next paint project.
I was born in England (I’m an Air Force ‘brat’) and was so excited when I found this British Flag dog bed. I assumed my 3 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels would equally love a bed with the flag of their heritage, since they are a British breed.
Well, they loved it alright! So much so that they chewed the guts right out of it!
I couldn’t bear to throw it away, so I cut off the worst side and mounted the salvaged side on a piece of board.
My trusty staple gun to the rescue again. Every DIYer must have a staple gun. Mine is so old school that it is rusty in spots.
Even with the chewed corners, I love the look.
I hung it above my computer so I can see it everyday. Coincidentally it hangs next to my clock labeled “Hampton London.” A whole British theme going on there!
Please share your rescue projects. We love hearing how our readers reuse instead of sending items to the trash bin.
