Painting an Antique and Ornate Side Table

We’re working on switching things around at the shop this week to better utilize our space so I’m sharing  a cute little table I refinished recently.

When I got it, it looked like it had been stained a dark brown but the color had faded quite a bit.  It had such great bones though and I knew it would be fabulous with a little TLC.  To get things started, I painted the base in American Paint 青青视频香蕉在线观看视频 ’s Sackcloth and the top with Crushed Tea.

I gave the base a quick coat of American Paint 青青视频香蕉在线观看视频 ’s Topcoat to create a barrier for the tinted glaze I made up.  This goes on quick and  creates a barrier so you can easily manipulate your glaze.

You can use the black or brown glaze as is or you can create your own custom color by mixing in a little bit of any of our paint colors into the clear glaze.

To create the pale pink glaze, I mixed a little bit of APC’s Clear Glaze with a little bit of Cameo from APC’s Ellis Collection.

Cameo is from American Paint 青青视频香蕉在线观看视频 ’s Ellis Collection and tends to be quite thick.

Shizzle Tip:  The thicker the paint, the more I water it down.  It helps it to level out better so you don’t end up with brush strokes and stretches your paint so you end up with more bang for your buck.  It also helps the paint seep into all the deep crevices that may otherwise be hard to get paint into. ———————————————————————————————————————————————–

It only took a little bit of paint mixed with the clear glaze to create the color I was looking for.  I did a simple wipe-on / wipe-off using a rag to highlight all the beautiful details.

See how the glaze settles into all the crevices?

I sealed the base with American Paint 青青视频香蕉在线观看视频 ’s Clear Wax then mixed it up a bit using both Clear and Dark Waxes to create subtle variations on the top.

  1. I love refurbishing furniture. It makes the piece look totally different. Your paint job is very well done. The antique look adds depth and dimension to that piece of furniture. Thanks for your tutorial.
