This little side table belonged to my mother-in-law and now it is ours. I don't have the original before picture but this is what it looked like after I stripped the table.
I was very hesitant to use yellow but I am so glad I did!
I used a chalk paint recipe (1 c. latex paint and 1/4 c. baking soda). I added a brown glaze to my paint to tone down the yellow. So things can be added and it is not an exact science/measurement. If the chalk paint is too clumpy add some more paint or a little bit of water. I suggest finding the recipe you like and run with it. There are tons out there and you really can't mess this stuff up....plus, practice makes perfect!
