Reimagined Monday: Kendal's Kitchen Table Save (and more!)

Today's Reimagined Monday post features a SAVE by the lovely Kendel Stinson.

After a family member watered some plants on the kitchen table, the moisture lifted and buckled the top.  We've all had things like this happen at some point and most people probably rid themselves of the piece, seeing it as a lost cause.

Not Kendel! She whipped out the belt sander to even the boards, and reached for Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan, taking her kitchen table from destined-for-the-dumpster to reimagined rustic.

A piece like this would cost a fortune at Restoration Hardware!

Old Ochre Chalk Paint® with Dark Wax

Besides the Old Ochre, Kendel also had Chalk Paint® in two other colours:  Primer Red and Olive, so she kept on painting!

Here is Kendel's drum table in Old Ochre with Olive Accents.  We LOVE it!

A retro table is given a facelift with Old Ochre and gorgeous Olive to accentuate the 'carved' details:

Antique smoking cabinets are a hot item, and Kendel updated hers to work in her modern living room.

Chalk Paint® in Primer Red

Even over laquer and faux-wood veneers, no priming or sanding is required with Chalk Paint®, saving time, money and energy for summer fun.

Thanks for sharing your fabulous projects with us, Kendel!
