Blue Round Double Tier Side Table

Paisley Ikat Dining Chair

As you can see in the before picture, a lot of the finish was peeling off. I used a plastic scrub brush to get the peeling varnish off before anything else.  Then I sanded the table with a rough grit sandpaper.  Two coats of blue paint were applied.  I sanded the entire table with a high grit sandpaper.  Next, I mixed some white paint with light wax and waxed the entire table.  I left wax in the crevices, which is the white paint you are seeing.  I think this finish turned out lovely!


The Ugly Before

Before Paisley Ikat Dining Chair

Finished Project

I’m in my mid 40’s, mom to one grown daughter, Katelyn, and a grandson, Dawson. He is the light of my life!! I am with the man of my dreams and he spoils me, as well as helping along with the furniture when I need help moving things in and out. My other hobbies include photography, scrap booking, reading and of course, decorating my home! My days find me in the office, painting furniture, decorating my home and when I’m lucky, shopping!
I hope you’ll follow along with me on this journey called home.
