A popular look, this is a finish which is most often created using black or brown wax. This one however, has been created USING ONLY PAINT.
Why have I used only paint? Well, it's quicker, easier and more affordable, because there are two parts to the process instead of three, and all you need to buy is paint.
When I posted this on my Facebook page recently it was a real hit, so I thought I'd write a short blog post to guide you through the process.
Here's what I did:
1. Painted the table in Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint in Jade with two coats.
2. Created a wash using Jet by mixing the paint 50/50 with water.
3. Applied the Jet wash over top of the Jade.
You can learn how to apply a wash effect at my FREE online furniture painting workshop.
If you're new to furniture painting I recommend testing the processes, either on a piece of wood, a photo frame or something small. This will give you the practice and help you to feel confident painting your furniture.
