Transform an old-fashioned shabby chic side table

by | Jan 28, 2021 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

I bought this little table a few years ago for our chalet. I loved the details of the flowers around the table and the legs, but on the other hand I found that it was a little dull and clashed with the rest of the decor … So I have my brushes and I’m ready for this bright little end of week transformation that is bound to look beautiful in my chalet !

First step: Preparation

 

I started by cleaning the table well with the varnish remover to make sure to remove any dust and grease residue from the fingerprints.

 

 

Second step: Paint

 

I applied my Colorantic Vintage Cream coloured paint all over and let it dry (about 30 min to 1 hour. The fact that it dries quickly, is really convenient. Then I then applied a second coat.

 

 

Third step: Protection

 

I applied my Natural beewax with a short bristle brush and applied it all over, to make sure it will be easy to work with the darker one and make it easier to make corrections if needed. I let it dry until the next day.

 

 

Fourth step : Finishing touch

 

For the application of the brown wax, I used a second short-haired brush (because I do not mix the brushes for the light and dark wax) …. I put it everywhere adding a little more product where there was the flower detail, because I really wanted to give it depth.

Then I wiped off the excess with my cloth and I adjusted more or less according to the look I wanted to give to my table!

A nice quick project that gives a superb result.

Note that the wax takes a few days to harden properly. It will be dry to the touch after about 48 hours but wait a good week to a month before using damp cloths to clean!
