The story of my table…  I bought a table for $10 and I upgraded it for a Hometalk Live show.  Sadly the veneer didn’t hold the paint and it started chipping up.  I am excited to share the re-do of this table with Dixie Belle Paint Company products!!!

The original re-do was peeling up.  It wasn’t hard to get the rest up.  All I had to do is scrape it up.

Back to it’s original form.

The next step was to clean it with Dixie Belle White Lighting Cleaner

After the table was clean, I painted 2 coats of Dixie Belle’s Slick Stick which is an awesome product that helps paint stick to slick surfaces.

I let the 2 coats dry completely.  Once that was done, I painted the top of the table with Dixie Belle Manatee Gray.

I let the paint dry completely.

I mixed Dixie Belle Whitewash Glaze with a little Dixie Belle Cotton.  I used the wood grain tool to put the glaze onto the table.  I mixed 1 part paint to 4 parts glaze.  You can get this look by painting the glaze mixture onto the table, then use the wood grain tool by rocking back and forth over the glaze to get the wood grain look.

 Once it’s completely dry, I will use Dixie Belle Gator Hide to protect it.
