First step is to lightly power sand the top then scrub the entire solid wood coffee table inside and out using a good cleaner like simply green, warm water and a cloth after removing the hardware. This will allow the paint to stick well.
Layers of Farmhouse White Ornate Vintage Coffee Table
Farmhouse white is soo popular right now and I get it. It is a classic look that can go in any color scheme. This ornate vintage coffee table has been made over in shades of farmhouse white. Let's see how.
Scrub your project well
I used a shade of white milk paint called sand for the first layer brushing on two coats.
Paint other layers
Next I painted on a layer of oyster white milk paint, then Rustoleum linen white was dry brushed over the first 3 layers. There are videos to help with this and the waxing stages on my detailed blog tutorial.
Sand, distress and seal paint
Once all the paint layers are dry the entire coffee table was sanded smooth, lightly distressed on the edges and then the rustoluem clear protective coat brushed on.
Add black wax
To bring out the details black wax was brushed on in all the nooks and crannies then the hardware put back on after a good scrubbing to bring back the original shine.
And here is the completed look
And the vintage piece now has a complete new look for many years to come. Are you a fan?
The coffee table is all fresh but still has the vintage vibe.
