Simple Furniture Painting With Dixie Belle
Yard sale find! Let’s give it a update!
1
This is a vintage game table. Remove the hardware.
2
Sand the base with your Rad Pads. This will scuff up the base for Silk Paint.
3
Clean inside and out with White Lighting.
4
Color choice? Classic blue. Silk All In One paint in Cape Current. With its built in top coat and primer this will be easy!
5
Silk paint is applied with a dry synthetic brush. It’s self leveling and dries with a smooth finish.
6
Cover the wood base with Cape Current. One coat of paint. Wait two hours before applying the second coat.
7
Since this paint has a built in primer, stains will be blocked! No primer needed!
8
After two hours apply your second coat of paint.
9
Let’s work on the top while the base dries. The plan is Gel Stain. This gel stain sits on top of your surface. No need to sand. Color used - Espresso.
10
Using the applicator pad apply the gel stain with the wood grain. Wipe on. I applied one even coat of gel stain. Top and edges.
11
Gel Stain covers old wood and scratches. Leaving a smooth uniform color.
12
Wait for the stain to dry. Depending on your humidity level this could take 24 hours or more.
13
Using the blue sponge apply a top coat. I used Satin Clear Coat. It goes on milky and dries clear. I like to add two layers of top coat.
14
Since the Silk paint has a built in top coat there is no need to seal the base. Install the original hardware and you are done!
15
One more coat of Satin Clear Coat!
16
Look at that wood grain! Amazing makeover.
