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.

My mother-in-law brought me these dilapidated waterfall pieces. I prefer some stained wood on a piece when possible so I sanded down the tops and the drawer faces with my orbital sander and stained them using our Cappucinno wood stain.
