How To Update Your Old Furniture With Paint!
Before- damaged brown end tables. Let’s paint them pretty with Dixie Belle!
Remove hardware. Clean inside and out with White Lightning. Line drawers with paper.
The tops of the tables are chipped and damaged. Gel stain requires no sanding, but I need to remove the loose varnish.
Sand the tops to remove the loose bits and smooth. Wipe clean.
No Pain Gel Stain sits on top of the existing finish.
Products needed? Glove, applicator pad and stain. Wipe on in the direction of the wood grain. Two coats will be needed.
Let’s paint the base in a ombré effect. In The Navy, Dusty Blue & Sawmill Gravy. Separate brushes for each color, blend on the second coat.
When the first coat dries I blended the second coat with my misting bottle filled with water.
Add another coat of Gel stain in Walnut.
And a peek of the Cacti & Succulent transfer on the top drawer.
Using Moonshine Metallic paint on Gold Digger and the Roses Silkscreen stencil I added corner details.
I sealed the whole table with Satin Clear Coat and my Blue Sponge.
Gilded the edges with some Gold Gilding wax.
Complete! A gorgeous makeover for some plain tables.
