Several weeks ago, I made a trip to a local health food store and bought Calcium Carbonate. I came home, put the bottle on the counter and there it sat, and sat, and sat. Finally today I broke the seal and mixed it with some paint that I had on hand. My ratio was 3 parts paint to 1 part calcium carbonate.

I did use Annie Sloan's Clear and Dark wax to give it an aged look.

Here is the before of the table.
And the after.
