Vintage White Table



Pin It


This is my yucky Nashville Flea Market table from about 9 shopping trips ago. It has finger nail polish, shoe polish, glitter, and who knows what else on it.

But I have a thing for drop leaf tables.



Frames from My Favorite Junk Shop all laid out waiting for spray paint.

I know……I should have something under them to protect the grass….just shoot me!



Rust-oleum paint

Rust-Oleum spray paint in Satin Lagoon, the same paint I used for my Create An Aged Mirror From Clear Glass project.

I don’t care what anyone says…..there is a major difference between spray paints brands. The generic kind from the big box stores just isn’t very good. Sorry, that’s my opinion.

I love Rust-oleum.


Vintage White Drop Leaf Table and Turquoise Spray Painted Frames

I sanded the top of the table then primed with Glidden Gripper Primer in Grey and put on two coats of Vintage White CeCe Caldwells’ Paint.

Then…..wait for it….

I took my electric sander and went to town Smile

I also lightly distressed the frames but I did them by hand with a small piece of 60 grit sandpaper.

Do you use spray paint and if so what brand do you use?

Am I wrong about the generic kind?  Maybe you guys have some favorites.

Do you like the vintage white table?

I always love hearing from my readers.

    There is definitely a difference in spray paints. I was painting my mother in laws white wicker furniture. She bought a dollar a can version. It was like a clear coat. I went out and bought rustoleum brand and was amazed at the difference of coverage. Sometimes you have to buy quality to get the proper outcome.

    I love that drop leaf table! major furniture crush! I don’t do the spray paint, I gum it up too much, drips and over spray and just a mess… my hubs is the spray paint guy… he prefers the name brands too, you get what you pay for he always says.

    Love your work!

    Love the table!! What character it has. I agree with the spray paint. Cheaper is not always better!! The blue in the frames is just the sweetest color. You have the best eye!!


  4. Nic says:

    Just stopped to see Mr. Butler and he told me you were there ysterday. Bought ahuge box of old Christmas lights for next to nothing. What a sweet man!

  5. Nic says:

    Yes. We went thru the back room. Didn’t know we weren’t supposed to. LOL. It was alot to see for sure. Would have loved to bring a few doors home too but we were pulling the camper on our way to gulf shores. No room. Boo.

  6. Nicki says:

    Oh my gosh! LOOOVE the table! I hope you will share at our party!

    Hi Kathy,
    I agree that not all spray paint brands are the same. Some are better than others. With that said, I haven’t been happy with any spray paint… ever. Perhaps I’m not cut out for spray paint. Too bad because it’s designed to make painting easy!

  9. The frames are gorgeous and the table is absolutely stunning. I love the way it turned out and your distressing definitely shows off the beautiful detail around the edges. Gorgeous. I would love for you to link this to my Inspire Me Tuesday party that is ongoing. – -

    I think this would definitely inspire other to be creative. Hugs, Marty

  10. so charming together!

    I usually use Rustoleum, too. But just on small projects, like your frames… which look great by the way! Just curious about the flea market you mentioned as my husband and I are spending a few days in TN next week.

  12. […] used the same paint on frames showcased with my Vintage White Chalk Paint Table and the 3 Cans of Spray Paint and 22 […]

  13. Rachel says:

    Though I admit that pricy paint is better, the $1 cans of royal blue paint at walmart have helped me to color coordinate my apartment and still be able to afford to eat. Somehow I lucked out, and my kitchen curtains, potholder, etc. exactly match the spray paint.

  14. Janet says:

    Luv the white table. Just beginning to paint….why did you prime with the ce ce caldwell paint? I didn’t know a primer was required if you used chalk paint. My husband said he is afraid to stand still any more…he might get painted! Luv reading your info…..

    • Kathy Owen says:

      Janet, The main reason I primed the table is because it had glitter, finger nail polish, marker and other things on the top. I sanded it but there was still some of the yucky stuff on the top so I decided a coat of primer was in order. You are correct…usually no need to prime with chalk paint.My husband finds it hard to avoid the paint too! Thanks for reading Petticoat Junktion. :-)
