Some wonderful friends of ours gave us a white side table. It had a lot of ware, and my daughters added some "nice" crayon artwork to it, so I knew it needed an makeover. I decided to lightly sand down the whole table because there was a high gloss on it, and it had some imperfections that needed to be sanded out (it took about 10 minutes).
I decided to paint the table a mint color and do gold accents. I used my Home Right Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer to make my project go so much faster for the mint! It took 2 coats of flax latex paint of course mixed with BB Frosch chalk paint powder (I ended up using 1 cup of paint, so 1/4 container of powder) and I sealed it in with BB Frosch premium clear wax.
For the gold in the middle and on the bottom of the table, I sprayed Kryolon champagne spray paint into the lid of the can and then brushed it on using a foam brush. After that dried, I painted a coat of Elegant Finish metallic finish champagne gold paint to give it a more smooth metallic finish. And ta-dah, beautiful gold accents.
My daughter picked out the cute new rose pull from Hobby Lobby.
She is so excited to have a "new" table in her room, and insisted on posing for a picture with it. :)
I was given this dresser in beautiful shape and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. My daughters were in need of a new dresser and this piece painted up beautifully! I decided to do the main part of the dresser a classy cream color (paint color: toasted marshmallow) with light distressing just on the edges to bring out the features of the dresser. For the top I sanded it down so I could do a faux stain top. Have I ever mentioned how much I like faux stain? SO much easier, less messy, less smelly and FAR time consuming. (faux stain tutorial in the tutorial tab on this blog)
I love how beautifully the faux stain top turned out and it looks just like real stain!
Here's the final product of the dresser. (Note I painted this about a year ago and it is still holding up wonderfully, and it's even in a kids room.)
