Hi friends! I have a FUN project to share with you today, on Thrifty Thursday – a raggedy Goowill side table updated with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! Now this project has been done for a while, I don’t know why it took me so long to share it with you! But now as a functional piece in our home, I just adore it. I’m so glad I didn’t pass it by…

Would you have? I don’t remember the exact price, but I think it was around $7. And I was looking for a small entryway table for my handbag and such and this seemed like the perfect fit.

So I took it home and added two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor’s Silk to the table. There were also some pegs missing, but I found easy replacements at Hobby Lobby that fit right in. A coat of paint on those and you couldn’t tell the difference.

I’m really in love with this color.

Now once dry, I started to work on the table with the Annie Sloan Dark Wax. We have quite a few burgundy accent pieces in our home, and when picking out the paint color I noted that the Emperor’s Silk with the Dark Wax took on more of a burnt red hue that I thought would be perfect for our home.

And here’s how the little guy turned out. What do you think?

I also added a fun wire basket to the center so I can store things there as well.

And now you can see where my handbag lives! I’m so happy I have a place to put it, and we have a key holder to match that sits right above. Now this is right next to our garage door so when I’m ready, I can grab my things and go!

    Freaking LOVE it! The wire basket makes it. I’ve been coveting the Annie Sloan collection but just can’t shell out for it just yet.

      It was such a happy moment when I got the basket home (without measuring or anything) and it fit like a glove! Don’t you love when things like that happen?

      Ahh yes Sue – I guess I should have worked that into the post! It’s just cheesecloth, which is what was recommended to me at the store where I bought the ASCP! It’s fairly easy to work with!

    I love this color — and Anne Sloan chalk paint! I actually just did a little end table in the stuff today, and I must say, I love it. I want to use this red color on something….I’m thinking a dresser I have…

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    This colour is so beautiful! I’ve never tried it, but seeing this I think I will have to. Gorgeous! I have a few thrifted and gifted items I have to work on, I really have to get working on them. Such a procrastinator.

    This looks awesome!! Do you have to sand with this paint? I have a table I got for free that has some color issues and I think a coat of paint is just what it needs.
