Hello! As you may know, I always get exhilarated when hunting for project pieces!! The thrill of the hunt, I guess!!
Well, each year in early March there is a fun 124-mile rummage sale locally that is referred to as the Historic Hwy 35 Junk Hunt! This is the first year that I have gone and boy did my mom and I find some fun items!
Today I am going to talk about the Sofa Table that I found at one of the sales that weekend.

I didn’t take a clean before picture, but here it is as I was starting to sand it.
I usually don’t sand prior to painting with chalk paint, but this sofa table had a bit of a shiny finish that kind of scared me…so I took the safe road and gave it a quick sanding with a DEWALT Orbital Sander.
I wanted to use Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue for this piece, but I wanted it to be on the lighter side, so I did a quick primer coat in Ultra White.
I then finished it with 2 coats of the Duck Egg Blue and an Annie Sloan Clear Wax finish. I really liked how it turned out! And, ironically, both my son and husband commented about how much they liked it here in the living room, so I guess this one isn’t going to my booth after all! (if the boys commented on it, then it was definitely a win!)
I kept the original hardware … I kind of liked it as is. I may end up painting them a cream and distressing later, but I haven’t made up my mind yet!
I set this up for a blog post on Impromptu Work Spaces in the Home, hence the laptop and chair! The chair was done awhile ago in the Duck Egg Blue, as well and then distressed. It was a Thrift Store find and has been hanging around my house for some time now. Now it has found a home!
Now I have a good place that I can sit and work at maybe on those days when I want to have the TV noise in the background or be around the fam!
Until next time, my friends,
