I’m in the process of switching my kitchen over to a lighter color scheme. I had this little accent table sitting in there, mostly holding my tupperware and some serving pieces. Since I don’t have a lot of cabinets, I really wanted to keep this table… just switch it up a bit!
And I’ve mentioned in the past that I purchase all of my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint supplies from a local store called Wood Icing, but did you know that Wood Icing is actually the name of a product they created? Yep! So I decided to give it a whirl.
I gathered my supplies:
- Wood Icing textura paste
- Textured shelf liner
- Off set knife
- Spray bottle filled with water
- Plastic spreader
- Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (duck egg blue and country grey)
The Wood Icing textura paste is a faux finish that can transform your furniture, cabinets and more. You can create your design using stencils, lace, or anything with texture.
To begin I spread the Wood Icing textura paste all over the table drawers using the off set knife (remove all your hardware first!). Don’t worry about the paste being perfectly smooth. Looks like peanut butter, doesn’t it?
For the faux finish I wanted an allover texture. I spotted some shelf liner at Lowe’s and thought I’d give it a whirl. Yep, cheap & easy.
When I peeled up the shelf liner up it left this cool pattern!
Now I was ready for some color! I painted the top and bottom drawers in Duck Egg Blue and the middle in the Country Grey (which is really more of a tan).
I’m haven’t waxed the piece yet. I’m trying to decided if I want to do some dark wax to bring out the texture even more, or just coat with some clear wax. I’ll let it sit for a bit and decide down the road.
Yeah, I was a little nervous about painting over such a beautiful table before, but I’m really happy with the end result! And I can’t wait to use more Wood Icing™ in the future! Very cool faux finish. You can actually order it online by clicking here!
