I am currently trying to get our second child's nursery ready (due November 2016). Part of that process means getting rid of some of my personal pieces! I painted a desk in chalk type paint and sealed it with wax a few years ago. It was looking very yellow and needed a fresh coat of white.
This was one of the easiest makeovers I've ever done. I gently sanded down the top with fine grit sanding paper to take off some of the stains and gloss and vacuumed off the dust.
Then I painted the whole piece in one coat of Picket Fence. About 45 minutes after I painted the piece, I distressed it with some medium grit sand paper.
I let the piece dry overnight and then painted a second coat just on the top. Since Fusion Mineral Paint doesn't require a topcoat for stain and water resistance, that was it! It took about 20 minutes!
This will be my go to coastal white color.
I just can't get over how good the Fusion white colors cover. Do you have a piece you'd like to refresh? Contact me (Taylor) for a free consultation on this easy to use products : )
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.
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.
