1. What a beautiful table! I want to try out that technique with the canning wax too, love that chippy look!!

  2. You are an artistic genius! I not only LOVE the technique (the fact you are willing to share it) but the color is amazing! I found this quote and immediately thought of you and how well you speak “that language”.

    There are infinite shadings of light and shadows and colors… it’s an extraordinarily subtle language. Figuring out how to speak that language is a lifetime job.

  4. Thanks for sharing Karen. I like the idea of being able to “control the chipping”.

  5. Love your little table, turned out great Karen!!

    What a beauty! I especially love the shade. Perfect hue to add together with all that chippiness. Love it!

  7. Love it–thanks for sharing! I use an old candle to get chippy and to make distressing edges easier. Have a good day!

  8. Great finish, and love that soft coral. A similar color could be achieved with one of our whites, a drop or two of the orange and a drop or so of Traverse City Cherry, for those that can’t find Portland.

    Love it! Why does chippy furniture have so much more charm and character than non-chippy? Thanks for sharing at Fridays Unfolded!


  15. Love the result. I think I will try this.

  16. Sharon says:

    Love it! I was sure you were going to say Vaseline… the wax is a new to me tip. I can’t wait to try it!

  17. Karen, this is soooo pretty and I LOVE the chippy look! Pinned 🙂

    Could you use the same wax you use as a top coat?

  20. Patty Soriano says:

    Canning Wax ? Really ?! Who knew? Well, obviously, you did. Thank you for the hint, Karen. I ADORE little tables and this one is the cutest! Sweet! So, is there something to put on the piece after you paint it so that it won’t continue chipping off ?
