Pale Blue Square Side Table
This beautiful small, square, solid wood, side table has been given a makeover using Vintro Chalk Paint. Originally dark mahogany, we updated it with Aurora, a soft and pale blue-grey, French Navy wax and silver gilding wax to show off the lovely carved detail.
Using a coloured wax that is in the same colour family is a great way to add subtle colour and depth without overpowering the original chalk paint colour.
Using our Staalmeester brush, we painted two coats of Aurora chalk paint with no priming or sanding. We didn't want extra texture so kept our brush wet whilst we painted. Once dry we used French Navy to make a coloured wax, this really brought out the carved details and added depth to the original colour. We used fine steel wool to pull the wax back in places where we didn't want it too dark, especially on the top. We then used our French Gilding Wax in Silver to highlight the curves and detailing.
