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!

I had the chance to transform a cute little dresser this weekend.  I needed a break from white after completing this dresser in Raw Silk so I chose my go-to color, Inglenook.

I recently got to try out one of the most popular new Fusion Mineral Paint colors, Raw Silk.  Raw Silk is a warm old white with barely a hint of yellow and just a touch of grey. It is the color of newly formed silk - the perfect off white.

Adrien of Freckled and Free found me this chest of drawers for only $25!  I was so happy as our new nursery/guest room is small and this piece is the perfect size with the deep drawers needed for a changing table.
