Beat up furniture collection including the Spindle LegTable makeover piece

A very kind and generous friend gifted me several pieces of furniture to use in my upcoming DIY projects and the spindle leg table caught my eye immediately. I love the shape of the table, the character of the spindle legs and the overall size of the table however, it needed some work.

Unfortunately, the top of the table was painted white along with some minor damage and the legs needed to be taken off and reset because they were very wobbly.

I decided to keep the bottom half of the table the original black finish and opted to fix the damage on the top of the table with some wood filler {affiliate link} and a light sanding {affiliate link}. I knew that I was going to be distressing the table after it was painted so the imperfections added to the character and look I was going for.

Diva of DIY chalk paint prep for spindle leg table makeover

Once the prep work was done I taped off the edges with painter’s tape {affiliate link} and got busy preparing a batch of paint with the chalky mix sample I received from LeAnne, the Diva of DIY.


I had some leftover satin off white paint in my stash and it was perfect for this spindle leg table makeover. Once everything was mixed I was pleasantly surprised to see that the paint had a consistency very similar to my own homemade chalky paint.

The paint dried quickly and I was able to add a second coat within 30 minutes of the first coat of paint. While it was drying I tape right down the middle of the table to create the grain sack stripes. 

stencil to be used on the spindle leg table makeover

After the stripes were dry I used the wreath stencil I picked up for $2 in the Hobby Lobby clearance section. I added the wreath using gray chalky paint and added my homemade No. 6 stencil to the center of the wreath.

This really was an easy furniture flip with some creative painting techniques. Also, I wanted to provide you with my review of the Diva of DIY paint mix. I had no problems at all and it completely went on, dried and distressed like any other chalky type of paint I have used, including my own homemade chalky paint.

    The table turned out gorgeous! Don’t you love it when friends think of you when they are getting rid of unwanted pieces. Those legs are just to die for, and now it has a top that is just as amazing! Thank you for participating in the Diva of DIY Chalk Mix Challenge!

    I love the stencil that you chose with the grain pattern. Your friend is a total sweetheart and she must be really excited to see what you did with her old piece.

    It looks wonderful.
