Before Mixing Furniture Paint Colors
This project started when I was asked by Dixie Belle Paint to do some custom color mixing with their paint. Of course, I said yes. I also said yes to doing a Facebook LIVE with the talented Tracey’s Fancy. It took one phone call to seal the deal. What a sweetheart! It was meant to be. Two Granny furniture painters. What’s not to love, right? Below is our Facebook LIVE if you want a few giggles. We really had a good time. Later on in the post, I’ll share her finished project with you as well. She’s really FANCY. *wink
Choosing The Wood Stain
Finding this small side table at our local Thrift Store turned out to be my lucky penny. I had been searching for something small to go in my office and it even had doors and small storage space inside. I’m thinking it would make the perfect napping spot for my sweet little Zoe. #furbaby
The wood top was still in pretty good condition with the exception of a few dark spots across the top. After using CitriStrip and cleaning with Odorless Mineral Spirits, I stained it with Old Masters Dark Walnut Gel Stain. Three coats of Minwax Wipe-On Poly was applied with a lint-free cotton cloth. Each coat was allowed to dry with a light sanding of 220 grit sandpaper in between the first 2 layers. The final layer was not sanded.
