I love working with white paint.
It gives such a clean fresh look to furniture.
Cottage Chic Magazine Table
I’ve been using the table in our den and I’m working on freshening the décor in the room.
I can’t do a complete makeover on the den but a little paint here and there is an easy update.
I used Reclaim Off-White from Caromal Colours for the finish…a 3-in-1 product….primer,paint,sealer.
I used a wet distress technique so some of the original dark finish would show in the distressed areas.
I used a wet shop cloth…the kind that comes in a can with some kind of cleaning solution…and scrubbed the white paint along the edges.
That paint was really hard to remove.
It had only been dry for a couple of hours when I started this process.
I finally resorted to spraying the table with Simple Green and letting it sit for a few minutes.
It was still hard to remove the paint!
I didn’t use a sander or sand by hand because I didn’t want to take the finish down to bare wood.
If you want to try this technique I would suggest not letting the paint dry for too long.
I couldn’t showcase Country Living Magazine and not include HGTV Magazine…..
These are my 3 favorites.
What about you?
