Logan writes: This dining room table and chair set belonged to my Grandmother. After she passed it was left in her home which flooded. Luckily, it didn’t ruin the table. I hauled it here from Idaho and my husband and I redid it together using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® and your staffs advice! It was our first chalk paint project…a project very near and dear to my heart.

Wow! Beautiful Logan! Logan used Florence under the Graphite with a light distress and clear wax! Thank you for sharing! So much fun bring new life to a worn piece!  Grandma would be proud!
