Just finished painting a cute end table for my customer’s living room, see below. She wanted it painted fresh and in a fun color.
I’ve selected some photos of rooms from BHG as inspiration for the color that I would paint the table.
Steps I followed:
- Wash and sand
- 1st coat = 1 cup of light grey latex paint + (2 tablespoons Paris Plaster + 2 tablespoons of water mix together, then add to the grey paint ), mix very well.
- 2nd coat, same procedure as above but with a different color, in this case a darker teal blue
- Top finish with dry brush stroke in a light teal blue.
- Let dry overnight.
- Distress by sanding lightly….try to get all coats to peak trough in different spots from top to buttom.
Many projects came my way this summer!
Here’s my latest paint projects for one of my customer’s. I must say this was a big undertaking. It was completely painted inside and out!
In order to create an antique french look here are the steps I followed:
STEP UNDERCOAT Created a chalk paint formula = 2 tablesp. Paris Plaster + 2 tablesp water, mix well together (no lumps) then add to 1 cup of latex paint, eggshell finish. Used paint color called Papier de Soie (light beige) from Sico.
STEP GLAZE, added antique white latex paint to the glaze… followed instructions on the label on the can. Used Faux Glaze purchased at Home Depot Montreal.
STEP DISTRESS: Sanded the edges with a medium grit #120 sand paper. Finished with a light sand paper to smooth edges.
STEP DRY: I let painted pieces cure for about 5 days before handing them over to the customers for transport.
Voilà!!! Don’t hesitate if you have questions it will always be a pleasure to assist you.
Take care, love Suzanne
