DIY White Painted Table, No Paint Brush Needed4:42 PM
A few months ago I was gifted this beautiful French Provincial Style table. (Free.99) It is SOLID wood and absolutely beautiful. It is probably one of the best gifts I have ever been given. I can't thank you enough Patti!
Although I love the stained wood, I really have always wanted a white table. I just thought it would be the perfect addition to my new kitchen, and that it would lighten up my main living area.
I decided to go with the ever popular paint color by Benjamin Moore, Simply White.
I have always painstakingly hand painted my furniture with a paint brush. I even painted my kitchen cabinets by hand ( I WILL NEVER EVER DO THAT EVER AGAIN!) It is just sooo much work.
I want to share a secret with you!
You can ditch the paint brush!
It can be sooo much easier!
You can finish a project like this in literally half the time!!
You can avoid ugly paint stokes and and a nearly flawless finish!
All you need are a few special tools.
After Cleaning, and Sanding, I Primed and finally Painted. Click HERE for my previous kitchen table makeover instructions in detail.
The only thing I changed in this process was ditching the paintbrush and used a pancake compressor and Paint Sprayer to prime and paint my table. BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE IN MY LIFE... almost!
Here is what I used. I thought I would make it easy for you to simply click and purchase if you see a furniture makeover in your future. Did I mention using these tools was the BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE?!? You can thank me later! ;)
Here is my table primed... I used the Paint Sprayer for this of coarse! So fast and so easy!
Here is my table Painted. I did three coats of paint for good measure.
And here is the finished Product! I could cry I love it so much!
I found the fabric for the chairs at IKEA. It was leftover fabric from a project I had done a while back. I may decide to change it in the future, but I think it is good for now.
I just love these ladder back chairs.
Hope this post is helpful in showing that painting furniture can be nearly painless with the help of a few special tools.
