This has now sold.
This beautiful small, square, solid wood, side table has been given a makeover using Premium Chalk Paint. Originally dark mahogany, we updated it with Bach Blue, a soft and pale blue-grey, Royal Navy wax and silver gilding wax to show off the lovely carved detail.
Using a coloured wax that is in the same colour family is a great way to add subtle colour and depth without overpowering the original chalk paint colour.
Using our Staalmeester brush, we painted two coats of Bach Blue chalk paint with no priming or sanding. Once dry we used Royal Navy to make a coloured wax, this really brought out the carved details and added depth to the original colour. We used fine steel wool to pull the wax back in places where we didn't want it too dark, especially on the top. We then used our Gilding Wax in Silver to highlight the curves and detailing.
This was originally painted in Vintro paints but we have updated the colours below
for The Artisan Company premium paint range.
