Shabby Chic Reclaim Beyond Paint Furniture Makeover
I’m trending white décor. Too bad I would have to change everything in my house to get the look I’m dreaming of. Maybe one piece at a time.
What a pretty table….right? Except it has a lot of missing veneer on the table top. So I decided on paint. Surprise!! I purchased this table when I went shopping with my friend Beth. We shop flea markets and junk shops for thrifty finds. No new stuff for us. It’s always fun to have a girls day too. We talked and shopped and talked and shopped.
I used Reclaim Beyond Paint in Off-White for the finish. Not too white and not too tan. The paint is a three in one product. No priming, sanding, or sealing!
We gathered the large sea shells on our trip to Kodiak Island to visit our daughter and her family.
I did a little distressing by hand where the veneer was missing on the top. Sometimes it’s easier to distress by hand instead of pulling out the electric sander. I have more control when sanding by hand. It takes longer but the finished look is worth it.
I dry-brushed the leg columns and thought that was a great look but then decided the table looked too choppy so I distressed the feet…..really heavily….so they would match the leg columns. For the heavy distressing on the feet I used an electric sander. So……what do you think?
