The love of transforming antique furniture inspired me to this project. This large side table has a lot of details and I wanted to make it a bit simpler. The Dusty Rose colour by Colorantic was chosen to give it back its beauty, while keeping its vintage look.

The preparation


The first step is to completely sand the table from all angles. A light sanding is enough because the Colorantic chalk-based paint covers very well. I recommend using the coarse side of the sanding block. Clean off any sanding residue with the cleaner and varnish remover to remove any remaining dirt or greasy substances that could affect the paint adhesion. Let it dry completely before proceeding to the next step.



The transformation


Because of the large size of this side table, Dusty Rose was the perfect colour to achieve the simple look I wanted. One coat was enough because the table was originally a salmon pink colour and the Colorantic chalk-based paint has a lot of coverage. The European oval paint brush is my favorite for this kind of task. The paint dries very quickly, and the fine grain of the sanding block softened the small brush strokes and prepared it for the application of the antique brown wax. I used the Snow White paint brush to apply the wax it to all the edges and small details of the furniture. When used sparingly, this brown wax looks a lot like a gold.





The Natural Beeswax was applied all over with the European style paint brush. The small gold-coloured original handles complemented the Dusty Rose colour very well. I let the side table dry for a few days.
