Painting a little table – 2 live videos

Check out these two YOU TUBE LIVE videos we did while painting a little table we got from one of our pickers. We like to try out different paints and today we are trying out a basic black spray enamel paint with Waverly chalk paint in blue and a sample of Duck Cloth by Dixie Bell Paints. The brushes used are both from Waverly. See links below

Before and After 40s Chest of Drawers

We love revamping items such as this 1940s chest of drawers.  This item found its way into our lives and it was just screaming to be loved and transformed back into its heyday.  After cleaning it with gentle cleaners and lots of elbow grease to get the nicotine and years of grime off, we gently sanded it, glued and shored up the drawers, and then prepared it for its first coat of primer.

We used three coats of primer, leaving dry time in-between coats.  Then we decided to go monochromatic in a lovely 1940s glamour grey.  After applying six coats with dry time in-between coats, we let it cure for a few days.  After that, we applied three coats of a clear, yet matte top coat, allowing dry time in-between coats.  Now it is lovely and ready to shine in its new home.  We priced it at a reasonable $159.  Call 850/224-6666 for more information on this or other items we have revamped, or to purchase via phone.  Check out other items on our Facebook page where there are many photos to look at http://www.Facebook.com/theothersidevintage or Instagram #theothersidevintage.
