ASCP Olive!

What a gorgeous set this turned out to be!  Miss Sophia has painted the table base and the four press back chairs in Olive, waxed them a bit with dark wax and re-stained the top in dark walnut.  Already lots of interest from our customers and it just went on Craigslist so it won’t be here long I’m thinking.  We are all in love with this set!  (~SOLD~)

Look at the dragons!

  1. i have a table and chairs that are almost exact to these. I’m wanting to refinish them similar to this. I need some direction please.

  2. Sand any rough edges and fill any damaged areas before cleaning. Clean your furniture very well with a degreaser since it has been used for dining. Apply two coats of Olive paint, distress if you’d like with a damp cloth or sponge and seal with clear and dark wax – though ASCP wax is very hard to use and I would recommend American Paint Company wax. The top was completely sanded and restained in a very dark stain (Jacobean or Dark Walnut) and sealed with a water based polyacryclic sealer NOT wax. In order to clean the surface properly after use, you need the protection of a polyacryclic sealer.

  3. My husband and I have this exact table and chairs. We just finished staining the table Jacobean and will apply the poly tomorrow. I’m hesitate on doing the chairs. They are in bad shape. I love the olive color but I was thinking of doing duck egg or old white…? Thoughts?

  4. Sorry! I missed your comment! Either color or Olive would be lovely with the table – don’t you love the Jacobean stain??

  5. I’m looking to make my table just like this. Do you happen to remember where and what shade of olive this is?

  6. Hi Dawn! It is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint if it is still available through them. Gorgeous color!

  7. This past winter I used chalk paint for chairs & base sanded & restained table top in dark walnut. Not a bad job just time consuming. Table came out beautiful, what a difference! We love it!

  8. I do miss painting a lot with chalk paint since we closed the doors, but my shoulders are much happier! Great results but NOT without a lot of work.
