Furniture old paint updating aedating 4 0 2 rus null
Yes, those were super easy projects that ended with majorly transformed pieces.
Several thin coats are much better than one thick coat….always! Here is another piece I did basically the same thing to. (also )….after…(Min Wax Poly Shades on the drawer fronts, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in “Cream” on the rest) These were all very easy projects using 2 great products that don’t require a lot of prep work. Definitely an inexpensive & quick way to transform and update wood on a piece you may already own or one you might pick up at a garage sale or thrift store.
I finished up the base with 2 coats of Old Ochre Chalk Paint, a very slight distressing and Clear Wax. What easier way is there to update old wood than this?
Look at the gorgeous shine on the new, deep colored top and those lovely colored legs. Like I’ve mentioned before, nothing beats a real sanding/staining/poly job BUT this is great for the home DIY-er or someone short on time, skill…or just patience!
I did get a couple negative comments about painting the wood, though… For this vintage buffet makeover, I even polled my readers what I should do: paint or strip. I ended up stripping the top and re-staining and then painting the body.
😉 In the meantime, let’s enjoy the beauty of painted wood and keep making our homes a little more colorful :).
