French drum table makeover

I am finally starting to get back to almost 100% thanks to the antibiotics.  I have still been pretty lazy.  Thank goodness I had pictures from a project from about a month ago. 

I don't know why I have a fascination with french furniture but I do.  I came across this french drum table at an auction about three or so years ago.  Here it is painted a glossy black and would be cream on the leather.  A little boy had come along and peeled off the cream paint.  I couldn't really get mad because what did I expect painting leather?!  So, this is how it sat for about a year and a half.  Please don't judge me too harshly.  When I needed to fill a little space in my booth, this seemed like a good candidate.

Since ASCP is said to stick to everything, I thought I would throw it on and see how it goes.  I painted Pure White first followed by one coat of Duck Egg Blue.  I little distressing and waxing.  Here is a not so good picture of it in my booth.

Forgive the poor photo.  I think I liked it better glossy black if there would have been a way to keep the paint on the leather.  But with the super power of chalk paint, it has a new finish and a new home already.  Sharing over at:


  1. I love the color! I have an old table just like that with the leather and was wondering what to do with it... Thanks! By the way, your comment section is not showing up. I had to hit reply to the comment above and then "add a comment" shows up at the bottom.
