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.

Adrien of Freckled and Free found me this chest of drawers for only $25!  I was so happy as our new nursery/guest room is small and this piece is the perfect size with the deep drawers needed for a changing table.
