Dusty rose - Old pink chalk based paint - Rose des sables

Antiquing an occasional table

My love of transforming antique furniture inspired this project. This massive round table has a lot of detail and I wanted to make it a little simpler. Colorantic™’s Sand Rose color was chosen to restore its beauty while retaining its vintage feel.

To begin with, sand the table from all angles. A light sanding was all that was needed, as Colorantic™ chalk paint provides excellent coverage. Using the coarse grain of the
sanding block
is recommended. Clean all sanding residues with the
varnish cleaner and remover
to ensure that no dirt or greasy substances remain that could interfere with paint adhesion. Leave to dry.


The transformation

As the side table is massive, the color
Sand Rose
was a perfect match. One coat was enough. Colorantic™ chalk paint has great coverage, and this table was originally a salmon pink. The
European oval brush
is my favorite for this kind of task. The paint dries very quickly, and small-grain sanding with the
sanding block
to soften the brushstrokes and prepare for the application of the
brown wax
. The brush
Snow White
is the one that will apply it to all the furniture’s edges and small details. In a very thin layer, this brown looks very much like walleye.


The finish

The application of
natural beeswax
was applied everywhere with the
European-style oval brush
. The small, gold-colored original handles harmonize very well with the Rose des Sables color.
Sand Rose
. Leave to dry for a few days.
