Gold Leaf Zig-Zag Table

I made it through to round 6 on SYTYC! Week 6 projects are up and I'd love it if you'd go vote for your favorite {which I really hope is mine ;) } The poll is on the right hand side and it only take a couple seconds!

I was really excited for this weeks theme {Glitter/Shine/Metallic}. But, I ran out of time due to my chronic procrastination to do the project I've been planning for months so I switched my thoughts around to this little lonely coffee table that had been begging for a makeover. I started out with DIY chalk paint, which was fantastic. I did no sanding or priming and I'm pretty sure this was laminate. Plus it only took 2 coats to take this from black to cream. Then I drew out the pattern I wanted onto the table, and hand leafed the gold leafs onto the table which was a lot more work than I had anticipated. It's definitely not perfect but I think the  flaws add more character ;) I love it and hope you do too!




For my chalk paint recipe I used

-1 sample sized behr paint jars
-2 Tbs Plaster of Paris
-1-2 Tbs water
