This project is sponsored by Eclectic, however, the thoughts & opinions are always my own. I only share products & companies I absolutely love with yall!
What can’t you do with paint yall?
It is the quickest & most budget savvy update on the planet & it makes a big impact!
The only problem is you usually need different kinds of paint to work on different kinds of surfaces… until now!
I have had my heart set on re-re-re (yes 3 times) doing this kitchen table & chairs set ever since my sneaky toddler got a hold of black craft paint & decided it was his turn to try & DIY. That will teach me to hide in the pantry for 15 seconds & to eat a Reese’s peanut butter cup without sharing.
Needless to say the black paint did not come off without a fight & definitely took some of the previous paint layers with it. The fabric seat covers sadly did not survive either but it was time for a change anyways!
To refinish the tabletop, base, chairs, & new fabric seat covers I thought I would have to get multiple finishes & types of paint until I found Eclectic’s Unicorn Spit paint!
It can be a paint, stain, or gel on multiple surfaces including fabric!
Faux Wood Tabletop & Chairs
After you get to the base of the piece finish it off with a smooth grit sanding pad, 220 grit is my goto.
TIP: Buy an electric sander unless you want muscles like Popeye the Sailor
Dry brushing just means I wipe the majority of the paint off with a paper towel
This portion of DIY is less science & more art. You can go back & forth between colors & use different variations of brush “wetness.” You can also dilute the paint with 0-10% water for different opaqueness.
I used a clean dry rag to apply it to the entire surface.
Sealing The Tabletop:
Famowood Glaze Coat
If you want the fabric to be permanently bonded to the seat use E-600 Spray Adhesive. My seat covers are washable though & I like the idea of being able to get rid of any “sticky” toddler situations with simple removal. I might change my mind later though i’ll keep you posted!
It may take a couple of coats after you let it dry.
Chair Base/Attaching The Cushions
Y’all this turned out even better than I imagined!
I love how rich the colors of the Unicorn Spit are & that I was able to mix different color combinations for the perfect faux wood look!
The painted fabric feels a lot softer than I was expecting & added a little something extra to the seat covers.
Let me know what you think of my color choices for my re re re redone table & chairs!
