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!
I started by painting the main part of the table white and the drawers in ASCP Duck Egg Blue, but it didn’t have enough pizzazz.
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.
Next I generously sprayed down my textured shelf liners with water and pressed it into the table drawer. Once I had it positioned, I ran over the backside of the shelf liner with my plastic spreader.
When I peeled up the shelf liner up it left this cool pattern!
Do you notice there’s no holes for the knobs? To fix I pressed my screws through the back side of the drawer where the old holes were and the dried textura popped right out!
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 attached the original hardware and I’m done!
So, what do you think?
Here’s a bunch of photos!
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!
