This is a simple and inexpensive pine side table I purchased on Trade Me a couple of years ago. When I first painted it I quite liked it but I wasn't over-the-moon. Then I decided to go over it with Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint in White when I first started spray painting, and I didn't love that look either.
On a wet and windy winter's Sunday afternoon I was browsing through Pinterest (as us creatives do) and I got all inspired. So, I decided to paint it the same colour as the table I have in our hallway and now I love it!

Here's what I did:
1. Applied one thick coat of Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint in Linen all over.
2. Created texture using the brush and a hairdryer (check out the video here). You can create even more texture by half drying the paint, then brushing in a back and forth motion.
3. Dry with a hairdryer.
4. Water down my Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint in Vanilla using 50/50 water and paint.
5. Apply a washed effect over the entire piece (check out this video here).
So, so QUICK, EASY + AFFORDABLE!
And all done in just on 2 hours.
Until next time,
