Refinished Farmhouse Table with Painted Stripes

January 18, 2014 1 Comment

Have I mentioned I love anything farmhouse? I can’t get enough and it’s probably my favorite style of painted furniture.

When I purchased this set, I saw potential but she was pretty beaten up. Someone had tried to restrain the top but didn’t sand all the way down and the stain was sticky. It had a lot of gouges that I filled with wood filler and let dry overnight.


I sanded the wood filler and used my new Titan paint sprayer to spray Simply White. As it turns out, yes you can spray chalk and clay paint with a paint sprayer.

On the advice of my father-in-law who owns a painting and roofing company, I did not water down the paint. I am a total novice so I did overspray some parts and had some plating but the good thing about CeCe Caldwell’s Paint is that you can sand down mistakes.

When I sprayed latex paint a single drip meant goodbye, sayonara, game over and the whole piece needed to be washed off. Not good for a total novice like me.

I smoothed out the white paint and distressed with 60 grit sandpaper and painted stripes in Seattle Mist. I then sanded the stripes with 60 grit.

Have I mentioned I love stripes right now?!

I love the simple and clean feel of the white with the rustic style brought on by the stripes.

 

You will probably be seeing this style again from me.

Today I'm featuring a thrift store chest of drawers that my sister-in-law and I found.  I thought I'd have to paint the whole thing because of damage to the veneer. But alas, while sanding some goop off of the top, I realized that the veneer underneath was perfectly fine and sanded the whole thing.  I decided to stain the top in Cappuccino Stain Oil, the perfect rich brown.

I recently freshen up my farmhouse style dining room table in Fusion Mineral Paint's Picket Fence and did a custom mix of Lichen and Picket Fence on my Buffet. 

All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.

I just repainted our brick fireplace using Fusion Mineral Paint. I still need to do a few more coats of black paint on the 90's gold but I'm loving it so far! First I dry brushed on a coat of Lamp White but it looked too cool in tone so I dry brushed on my go-to off white, Champlain on about half of the bricks to warm it up.
