This n’ That Thursday – A Before and After

Print Friendly

I got this very stylish and classic oval walnut coffee table that had too many dents and scratches to leave unpainted.

I sanded down the top of the table and rough edges of the scalloped top using 120 grit sandpaper. I then cleaned the entire table using American Paint Company furniture/brush cleaner.

I used Voyage from the ‘Ellis Collection’, the latest colors from American Paint Company, over the entire table. I’ve found that using a spray bottle of water to spritz my paint brush evens out my strokes and extends the paint very nicely. After it dried, I applied a metallic bronze paint I had to the inset of the top.

After I applied the bronzing solution and let it dry—I didn’t think it had enough of a “pop” so I went over the top with a wash of Voyage. Actually I had been water distressing the legs and sides of the table and using that cloth I wiped down the top, leaving enough of a hint of voyage that satisfied me. The wash was able to grab the textured areas and set off the metallic paint.

The entire table was clear waxed using American Paint Company wax. Again, I felt it needed something more on the top, so I added some Copper Mica with Clear Wax and went back over the top.

A dainty and sleek walnut coffee table that now has a new look and hopefully a new home!
