Before we get to this little trash to treasure project, I must share a bit of info that really made me smile! My friend, Celeste is my local Annie Sloan stockist. She just traveled to Oxford, England for a workshop run by Annie herself (how amazing) and guess what? Celeste told me that Annie Sloan knows my page and my work and loves it! Wowza!
Now on to this week’s Favorite Find Monday – now a true trash to treasure 🙂
Here are the pics from what my mother actually found in the trash.
After glue, wood filler, sandpaper, General Finishes milk paint in Persian Blue, GF High Performance Topcoat in satin, and Gold Gilding Wax by Cire a Dorer (see video tutorial on how to apply the gilding wax at bottom of post)…
Here is the table now!
Here is the link to the video on how to apply the Cire a Dorer gold gilding wax. I cannot say how much I really love this product.

Wow! I never expected that small thrift store table to turn out so good. I’m sorry I doubted your skills 🙂 It’s beautiful Suzanne!
Thanks, Vicki! I love the trash to treasure posts 🙂
Oh wow! I LOVE it. Thank you!! Can’t wait to see it tomorrow. Mum
Of course Annie Sloan admires your work, you ARE amazing! And your little stand is adorable. Cyn
Oh, Cyn you are so kind! Thank you so much!
Of course Annie knows and loves your work…just look at what you did with that pile of junk at the top of this page! WOW!
Thank you so so much!!

Thanks, Megan! It was a fun project 🙂
Now THAT is a transformation! Amazing!
Thank you so much Kim!
How beautiful it looks Suzanne. I am looking I see if there are any milk paint workshops here in Kent UK. I already use Annie Sloane chalk paint but would like to try something a little different too.
Thank you, Cheryl! I have a few video tutorials on it but the best way is to pick up a brush and have fun 🙂
Wow! Beautiful! You truly have amazing skills beyond paint. No one would ever guess what that table looked like when you started. Kudos to Mom for rescuing it.
Thank you Laura. Well I know my daughter, and what she is able to do with junk, and I really needed a little table just like this. I am thrilled with it. It looks wonderful in our condo. Suzanne’s mother

Thank you, Nancy!
Did you add the gilding wax after the GF top coat ?
Hi Darlene, I did add the gold after the initial topcoat but applied one more topcoat over the entire chair(s) as they are going to get a lot of use. It just so happened that I added it over the gold but I didn’t need to as the gold is a wax and I don’t believe it needs a sealer.
This is a beautiful table….
You did a lovely job!
What a tremendous compliment from AS herself and it is 100% well deserved. Thanks for all your hard work and all the beautiful projects you complete and share with all of us.

Wow Suzanne, you did a beautiful job on this tea table. Love the color and the gold highlights – pinning to share. How exciting that Annie Sloan knows of your work – that’s a huge testament to your mad refinishing skills! I had the chance to meet Annie Sloan a couple of years ago when she was in town. Such a nice, down-to-earth lady.
Another beautiful transformation!!
