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!

I love that you painted the drawers a different colour to the rest of the side board.
Thank you, Claire!
WHAT…..A…BEAUTY!! That’s fab
Thank you, Deborah!!!
Oh Sam, how lovely! I love this two tone sideboard, I only wish I had room for something like this! SO gorgeous!
Thank you sweet, Katrin!
This turned out so pretty. Love the colors you chose for this beautiful piece.
Thank you, Denise! My client was super happy which made my day!
Wow Sam! What a transformation. I really love this one. 🙂
Thank you so much, Kim! It was hard to say goodbye to it!
Ordinarily, I love painted furniture and while I truly like your finished product very much, it’s the one piece I wouldn’t have painted. 🙂
I guess it’s a case of each to their own Rebecca and who the piece belongs too! My client wanted to have this sideboard painted and brought back to life so she could enjoy it in her home and remember her grandmother fondly by!
