Campaign Chest Table Makeover

6 Materials
4 Hours

So this Campaign Chest Makeover can go either way, some might really like it and some might say that I ruined a solid wood furniture piece!But in my defense I have had this Campaign Chest Table for almost 32 years even before I was born !! So you can imagine that I have been seeing this basic brown piece of furniture for so long that I was dying to give it a makeover at this point.

 Let me give you guys a good picture of how it actually looked in its original glory.

So there you have it, some might actually like it and don’t get me wrong I did actually love this piece but I had had enough and it was time for a change.And that is what I set out to do to give it a total transformation.

I chose a Chalky Paint Finish in the color Treasure from DecoArt.

To enhance the carvings I went in with a round fluffy brush and used 24K Metallic Gold by DecoArt and went around the entire wooden carvings.

I stenciled the piece in various places to give a victorian era vibe using the same gold color that I used on the carvings.And that was basically it.

What do you guys think?I absolutely love the results.

    Never apologize for your dream. It may offend others (even me)to paint over solid wood but sometimes you just have to go for it!
