|This was a Coffee Table I Got through the Classifieds. |
Found it Online,
and Asked (Begged?) for it for Christmas.
|These are what I used to Sand the Table.|
Its 60 Grit
Note: I Didn't take All the Finish off,
Just Scratched it Enough to Give it some Gripping Power for the Paint.
After Sanding, I always wipe things Off with a Wet Paper Towel.
I Used "High Hiding Primer"
it was What I had on Hand
|[I Had a Scratching and Priming Buddy]|
|This is What I used to Sand Between my coats of Paint.|
Then wipe off with a Wet Paper Towel.
|These are the Paint Brushes I used for this Project.|
I wanted to avoid the brush strokes of a Paint Brush,
but needed something to get in all those cracks!
And? I Didn't feel Guilty throwing them Away!
|Two Coats of Paint.|
Sanding in Between Coats with the "Between Coats" Sanding block
|Then, Before Doing My Final Tops Coats,|
(Glaze and Polycrylic)
I sanded it with this,
(and then Wiped it Down with wet paper Towel)
It gives it a Smooooooth Finish.
|This is My Tintable Glaze.|
This is What I use to put all the Dark Spots,
and Details on My Table.
It Comes Clear,
Mine is Tinted to
"Fired Earth" by Valspar.
For the Glaze:
Work in a Small Area,
I used a Foam Brush and Brush the Glaze on,
then took a wet paper towel and removed it-
keeping it darker where I wanted it darker,
and removing most of the glaze where I wanted it Lighter.
You can always add more, if You decide to later!
|This is the Polycrylic,|
I always put a coat or two on at the End.
The Color that I used,
"Secluded Garden" by Valspar in Satin Finish.
Oh, and the Crystal Knobs.
LOVE the Crystal Knobs.
I Used the Same Steps that I used in
