Rustic French Farmhouse Table
This table has been given a rustic French farmhouse makeover. With lots of texture and detail, this is a beautiful table and is a look that is lots of fun to achieve.
The tabletop was done using the Vintro Paint NZ Farmhouse Rustic Wood Look project series. Using the natural bristle brush we painted Fresco on with lots of texture using plenty of paint. To speed up drying we used a hot hairdryer and then manipulated the paint to form a porridge-like consistency. Once it was half dry we pulled the paint in one direction so that it formed wood-like knots. Once fully air-dryed we lightly sanded any loose bits of paint and then applied our waxes with the natural bristle brush. The first wax we used was the Vintro dark wax and then we used Midnight to make our second wax - this is a bit different than in the project series but gave a softer, lighter wood look.
For the legs, we first painted in Champagne Waltz using our round synthetic brush. We then applied a layer of Vintro dark wax, making sure to get in the details. For sections where we wanted it a bit lighter, we applied a Pearl wax.
