I participated in the Heirloom Traditions and Hometalk Paint Challenge this month. I decided to paint the tv stand in our living room in hopes of brightening up the room and creating a more "distressed" look to go with the rest of the decor.
Original black tv stand in our living room.
New knobs from World Market to complete the new look!
To start, I applied first coat of chalk paint with a paint brush.
I let the first coat dry for about an hour and then applied a second coat of chalk paint. I wanted a rough'ed up look so I sanded down the edges after the second coat dried (sanding not pictured).
Poured my wax into a bowl to apply with a paint brush.
Painted on the wax coat.
Wiped wax down with a wet sponge.
Wiped wax coat dry with a rag.
Finished product!
Tada! Very pleased with how much this lightens up our space!
