How to chalk paint a metal surface with Annie Sloan

Our outdoor metal bistro table was looking mighty sad to me today. Splattered with specks of multicolored paints and tea light candle wax that begged silently for help. What do I typically do when faced with a home decor emergency? 

Paint it. I run to grab my handy dandy paint brush and Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Coco. But, before I could paint the metal bistro table I had some serious scraping to do. Annie Sloan's chalk paint will miraculously stick to any surface(even glass), but the surface needs to be clean and dry first. Scrape the surface with a knife(if necessary), wash, dry, and repeat until you have the clean surface you desire. Now let's paint!

I used three coats of Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Coco. Coco is a very Fall color and it goes exceptionally with the Chateau Grey colored exterior of my home. I will do an update in the Spring to show you how Coco weathered the wintry months. In the meantime, check out my Annie Sloan painted shed  for more outdoor Annie Sloan DIY projects!
