How happy is this little set up???
As most of you know...that is my office...and those are MY breakfast room chairs. I used them to stage this table that I painted for a local client.
But....DANG! When I look at this picture it really makes me wish this was MY breakfast room!
I could sit and drink coffee with friends and family for hours in this space!
Smack in the middle of all the "pretty"...is this table!
You've all seen one....and possibly may own one!
The out dated.....boring....golden oak table!
This piece was transformed sooooo easily!
I made a video discussing the "ins and outs" of painting oak......you can catch that below....
I promise it really was that easy!
So what are you waiting for? Order your paint....and get busy! It's time to create a happy space in your home!
Furniture Painting Basics
Sand the top down just a bit, depending on the finish. The surface you're painting on is only as good as the surface you start with. It was a bit chippy so I leveled it out by sanding.
Wipe it down very well with 50/50 Warm Water + Vinegar. Let it dry.
I spritz my chalk-type paint brush with just a little of water to get it wet. I also spritz water directly on the furniture.
i then dip my brush in the paint and run it across.
This is only my first coat.
