This table was purchased from an old farmhouse, where it had seen better days.  One leg had been chewed up by and animal, but I knew I could do something fun with this 3 legged old girl.  I cut all the legs down from waist height to coffee table height.  The top was badly stained, so in came dark chocolate milk paint to the rescue.  Top was sealed with High Performance topcoat in satin.  Legs were painted with a custom mixed Annie Sloan Chalk paint color, sealed with AS black wax.  Foam board was cut to fit back wall of cubbyhole, foam was covered in vintage reproduction fabric in French wording.  From chewed on mess to fab coffee table.
