Painting a coffee table is a great way to update your family room without spending a crazy amount of money. DecoArt paint is very reasonably priced and can be purchased at A.C. Moore, JoAnn Fabrics and Michaels.
DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Yesteryear
DecoArt Vintage Effect Wash Paint in White
Paper towel or rag
1) Clean surface. Gather supplies. Cover floor with drop cloth to protect from paint splatters!
*Flip coffee table upside down to make painting legs easier.
2) Dry brush the grey "Yesteryear" paint over surface. For this project, I wanted some of the warmth of the original stain to stick around. I painted in light layers to allow some of the original brown to show through.
3) Once paint is COMPLETELY DRY coat in DecoArt Vintage Effect Wash in White. Depending on how much grey you want to show through, you can use a rag or paper towel to wipe away excess paint.
4) Once the wash is dry, use your sand paper to distress!
