Antique Makeover

My neighbor helped me paint a few months back.  She worked hard and helped me get caught up.

Instead of paying her for her time, we agreed that I would paint a piece of furniture for her.  She received an antique secretary and wanted to make it work for her.  It is a family heirloom (no pressure).

Here’s the process.

It was in great shape, just wasn’t the style the 13 year old wanted.

The first step was to spray primer and paint to the interior of the piece.  There were so many cubbies, I could not imagine using anything but spray paint.

I then applied two thin coats of pink spray paint.

See the mark on the lower right and the bottom left?  For some reason paint did not adhere to these areas.  After several attempts at sanding and reapplying the paint, we got it to work.  I still have no idea why that occurred.

TIP: When applying spray paint to a small area, spray the paint on a foam brush and gently wipe on!

The outside of the cabinet received 2 coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.

Glass knobs complete the look.

Two coats of clear wax and light distressing gave her the finished look she wanted.

Thankfully she is pleased!  It looks great in her room too.

Have a great day!
