Since I am out of town, I painted an end table last week and held off on showing you. I have had this mid century end table in my home for a long time, but my husband and I never really loved it. It was one of my first pieces and I never really got around to selling it. The blue and white just didn't fit it. I felt like a modern chevron would be a cool twist for this once 'very modern' mid century piece. I am not one for the more modern looks, but I do appreciate a good chevron and try to keep up with all the "trends" of the time.
I used Paris Grey Chalk Paint and Old White Chalk Paint. I hand-painted the chevron on after my husband was kind enough to figure out all the measurements. I chose not to tape off the chevron, I find that no matter how high-quality the tape, I still have a lot of bleed through and end up touching up a ton. I didn't distress this piece or dark wax, I wanted a clean look and finished it off with a clear wax.
