I am so excited to share this transformation with you!
Here’s a video sharing the products that I used for this project!
This is the little table I transformed before I began.
I removed the drawers from the table.
Cleaning the piece before painting it is a must!
Here’s where the real fun begins!
Ignore my bad manicure and focus on the awesomeness on the brush! 🙂
Here’s a little fun slow motion video of me painting the top of the table. It’s hypnotic. 🙂
This is one coat of the DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish Paint in Primitive. I used a chip brush to apply the paint and it dried very quickly. I went back over it all with another coat and then let it dry thoroughly.
The next thing I did was remove the hardware from the drawers and paint them.
After a couple of coats of paint on the drawers, the frame of the table was dry, and I began distressing it. I used a piece of sand paper and the edges were very easy to distress.
After I used the sand paper on all the edges and really roughed it up, I brushed on the DecoArt clear wax and let it dry.
Here’s a little video of me applying the clear wax.
After the clear wax dried, I added the antiquing wax. The antiquing wax gives the piece a time worn look. I used the DecoArt Americana Crème Wax in Golden Brown for this project. You just brush it on and wipe it back. It is super easy!
Here’s a video showing how I did that step.
Doesn’t this look amazing!! I love how the dark wax picks up all the little textures and scratches.
Once the whole piece was waxed, I did some fun stenciling on the drawer fronts. I used the Americana Classic stencil called Jacobean Floral and DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish Paint in Lace.
Here’s a video of that process.
After stenciling each drawer, I let it dry and replaced the hardware.
Here’s the finished project! I love how it turned out.
These products are super easy to use and I was able to complete this project in a very short period of time!
(I was offered these products by DecoArt in exchange for a project review as a part of their Blogger Outreach Program.)
