Stately Soapstone Table - Fusion Mineral paints

I was so happy to find this little gem in my garage the other day.  My mother-in-law nabbed it for me from a garage sale!

I decided to try the color Soapstone from the Michael Penney Collection.  I painted the lower part of the table and it went on super smooth with excellent coverage.  The bottom of the table only has one coat of paint!

As for the top, I decided to experiment.  I painted a coat of Soapstone all over, then I added some Picket Fence mixed with Bedford.

I took my orbital sander to the top and distressed it.  I love this coastal top but it just didn't seem to match with the bottom.  It was all coastal on top, business on the bottom - ha!  Alas, I painted over it for a clean, stately look.

This paint is self-leveling and you can tell with how smooth it turned out.

I very lightly distressed, let it dry overnight and took it to Lighthouse for sale.

Want to try Soapstone but not sure where to start? Contact me for a free consult on your furniture piece!

Hi — lovely table! I’ve been using Fusion paints as well and wonder about bleed-through on knotty pine. Have you experienced any? I have an Ikea knotty pine hutch I want to paint “Champlain” color and worry about bleed-through. Thanks!
