It’s been an incredibly busy week here at Casa Watkins. So many projects were completed this week and I have another to share today! I joined the Fab Furniture Flipping Contest group a few months ago and have been looking forward to each of the contests. This month, we were asked to transform a piece of furniture and Make A Statement using DecoArt Americana Decor chalk paint. I recently became a DecoArt blogger so this contest was especially special.
Let’s take a look at the results.
I decided to make the small end table into a statement piece. The table was a purchased off a Facebook swap group. The previous owner had covered it in a light blue paint color which I later sanded down for a nice patina. It’s a great combination for my navy blue powder room walls, but I wanted to pump up the color to make the table a wow factor in the powder room.
Changing the color to a green color named New Life by DecoArt was the perfect solution. I applied a coat of the paint, waiting until the first coat dried, then applied the second coat. Once the table was dry, I used the Soft Finish Varnish to add luster. This completely transformed the table from a chalky muted finish, to a semi-shiny beautiful green.
A bit of gold Rub and Buff on the hardware and we were all set! I haven’t moved the table back into the bathroom yet since it looked so nice by the front door. It’s definitely a statement piece!
