How to paint that rustic farmhouse style
So i’m gonna buy a table at a tag sale this weekend and need some help on doing the improvements. Seems like most people on here use the currently popular chalk paint for everything but I don’t have it. I was hoping to just use the leftover gallons I have in the basement. I think we have eggshell white for the walls and some grey-blue outdoor deck paint.
My questions are can I use these/what would you use? Do I need to strip off the top layer clear coat? I know I‘ll need to do some sanding to make the rusticness appear but how important is sanding in the beginning before painting?
thanks for all your diyer help
