Painted Target night table with chalk paint

Amazing what a little ASCP in duck egg blue will do! I bought this table from Target 3 years ago when my little man graduated to a big boy bed. The table was navy blue to begin with so all I did was apply one coat of ASCP in duck egg blue. Once dry, I took a fine sanding block and did a little distressing. This was my first go of it using chalk paint & I will say, I was freaking out because it looks REALLY bad wet….very streaky!  BUT sure enough, it dried to a really cool matte finish. Barely NO streaks. It distressed SO easily!  EASY PEASY!   This is the before:
Being a beginner with this painting furniture “thing”, I decided to buy Shaunna’s painting furniture eBook over at Perfectly Imperfect and I am SO glad I did Smile!  Her Ebook has so many great ideas, techniques & great “how to” video’s! I highly recommend you go check it out!

PS. new blog design & name change coming soon! I love my name “nucheysmommy” but wanted the name to be geared more towards our family of 4 generations living under 1 roof. We do so many projects together while living together….. I thought it would be fun for the blog name to reflect that 🙂

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    It turned out great! I haven't tried AS paint and I would really like to. Maybe I'll have to get serious about it! 🙂

    This looks amazing! Great job! I haven't tried ASCP yet, but I keep thinking about it. I can't get over the price of it.

    Hi Jessica, you really gave this Target table a nice dose of extra character. I'm glad to hear you liked Shauna's book. I was wondering if I should get it. Life certainly must be interesting will all of the generations under one roof!

  6. It looks wonderful. I've seen those table and thought of doing the same thing. Yours came out lovely.


  7. Hi, Just found your site via Shauna's ASCP post. Love the Target table transformation it has so much character now. I'm from Massachusetts as well and having been dying to order some ASCP for myself.

    Did you paint that piece indoors? And did you apply a top coat as well?
