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!

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.

I recently freshen up my farmhouse style dining room table in Fusion Mineral Paint's Picket Fence and did a custom mix of Lichen and Picket Fence on my Buffet. 

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.

I just repainted our brick fireplace using Fusion Mineral Paint. I still need to do a few more coats of black paint on the 90's gold but I'm loving it so far! First I dry brushed on a coat of Lamp White but it looked too cool in tone so I dry brushed on my go-to off white, Champlain on about half of the bricks to warm it up.
