Antique Shelf Makeover in Inglenook

July 19, 2016

I have been waiting impatiently for a furniture piece to come along that I could use Fusion Mineral Paint's Inglenook color on and the perfect piece arrived!

I purchased this shelf from Diane at The Rusty Star for my Fusion Mineral Paint finishes and prep display at our room at Lighthouse Antique Mall in Olympia.  It was in pretty rough shape with varnish flaking off and a lot of damage to the veneer.

First I covered the entire piece with Ultra Grip because the surface was so shiny.  This product is a life saver when you don't want to sand down an entire piece and just want to paint over the slick surface. 

After the Ultra Grip dried overnight, I painted a coat of Concealer/Color Blocker on to block out the dark varnish. This is quickly becoming a major time saving product for me! 

Because of this product, I only painted one coat of Inglenook and achieved full coverage!!  Here is a video that shows my prep process and me painting on that glorious first coat (yay)!

*please note that Fusion no longer makes the project Concealer/Color blocker but check out this post for tips on how to prep your project*

Imagine how happy I was that I only had to paint one coat, especially with all of the spindly arms!

 I can't stop thinking about how good the coverage is with only 1 coat!

Depending on the lighting, Inglenook can look more blue or more mint.

I dropped this cutie off at Lighthouse Antique Mall and this color (Inglenook) received rave reviews!  I think it will be a huge hit with our online customers and local Olympia customers as well!

Priming can serve two functions: to get a surface ready to accept paint or to block out color on a surface when you're making a dramatic color change (or if you're worried about bleed through from wood.)
