So close, yet so far away.
This is me trying not to live in regretsville.
I decided to go with a weathered, coastal finish using Silverhill Fog.
To achieve this look, I dry brushed on Silverhill Fog paint straight onto the table.
Here is a video of how I did it.
Here is a pic of half of the table after it was weathered.
After the grey dried, I sprayed the whole top down lightly with water and let the water sit there until it dried.
Once it dried, I played with Clear Glaze!
I applied the tinted Glaze all over the top with a staining pad. In the picture below, the left side has tinted Clear Glaze.
The Glaze went on a little heavy so I sprayed it down with water and wiped some of it off.
Then I sanded the edges and top of the table with my orbital sander using fine grit sand paper.
Finally, I sealed it with my favorite finish, Endurance Finish.
The stripe around the table is painted in Thomasville Teal.
Gotta have my pop of color.
I'm happy with it!
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.
Today I'm sharing the before and after pictures of this amazing antique trunk turned coffee table. My friend Adrien gave us the vintage trunk that had an . She is the King of finding awesome stuff for cheap or free! Our living room is a really narrow rectangular shape so we were having a hard time finding a coffee table that was small enough.
