Since making the move to Louisiana I haven’t been finding the treasures like I thought I would be. Everyone told me I would be finding lots of awesome junking treasures in the South, but it’s been slim pickins thus far. I have a feeling part of that is because I don’t know where to look. I have slowly been checking out thrift stores and looking around for those hidden gems. If I have any readers from the Shreveport area and know of places I should check out, let me know!
Well anyways, a couple weeks ago I did score this awesome old drop leaf kitchen table. It only has one leaf though. It’s pretty old and I can tell that it’s been around awhile. The other leaf is just gone, but I still think it is an amazing table.
The table was pretty wobbly which was an easy fix, just a little tightening of the legs. It also needed a major scrubbing. I think this table must of been shoved in some barn somewhere and forgotten for years.
Of course I painted the vintage table! I used some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White for a creamy white makeover. I wanted to work with the shabby look of the table so of course I distressed the table with some sandpaper.
I decided to try some Polycrylic on my drop leaf table. I haven’t used it with the Annie Sloan paint but I wanted to give it a try. It worked really well, it did yellow the paint just a bit but it almost adds to the old feel of the table! I’ll just keep that in mind in the future!
The table turned out so cute! It would be such an adorable breakfast nook table or a little entryway table.
Well that’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed the transformation of my Vintage Drop Leaf Kitchen Table!

Last week I shared the Nautical Pallet Flags that I made for the Joann Fabric and Craft Stores® National Craft Month campaign. Come check them out and I’ve included my tutorial for how I made these!
