With a New Year upon us, this means lots more fun furniture flips for my sweet clients and also for our home! So today I thought I would share with you my first client project for 2018 with how to paint a Farmhouse Sideboard using Fusion Mineral Paint.
How to paint a Farmhouse Sideboard using Fusion Mineral Paint
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Heirloom
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Champlain
- Old sideboard or any piece of furniture will do.
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Beeswax Stick
- 220 & 120 grit sandpaper and sander
- Paint Brush
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Beeswax
Step 1 – Sand the entire piece using 220 grit sandpaper to remove the shine and any lumps and bumps.
Step 2 – Remove all of the hardware. I decided to use the existing hardware and give it a bit of a clean in a water and vinegar mixture. I didn’t want to spoil any of the beautiful patina! Using your beeswax stick apply to areas where you would like the paint not to adhere to.
Step 3 – Give the drawer fronts 2 coats of Heirloom letting each coat dry in between. Distress to your liking using 160 grit sandpaper. Wax to seal.
Step 4 – Give the rest of the sideboard 2 coats of Champlain, letting each coat dry in between. Using your sander and 120 grit sandpaper distress to your liking and wax to seal.
And there you have a new Farmhouse Sideboard!
