White Wash Side Table

Paisley Ikat Dining Chair

I sanded the table down with a rough grit sandpaper.  Then I cleaned the dust off with a slightly damp cloth.  I mixed up a white wash with one part paint and one part water.  I applied the paint using a chip brush.  Only one coat this time and the wood still shows through nicely.  I sanded the table once again with a high grit sandpaper.  I waxed the entire table for protection.  Don’t you think it looks more stylish after?

 

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.
