LIGHTENED-UP KITCHEN TABLE

-

Treat your dark table and chairs to a lighter new look with instructio­ns from Christy James at Confession­s of a Serial DIYer.

STEP 1 Sand your table with 150-grit sandpaper, followed by 220-grit sandpaper.

STEP 2 Give the top a coat of wood conditione­r to prepare it for staining. Apply Dixie Belle Paint’s VooDoo Gel Stain in White Magic using a soft cloth, working in the direction of the grain. Apply another coat after 15 minutes. Let dry for 30 minutes and then apply two coats of Dixie Belle Paint’s Gator Hide.

STEP 3 Apply three coats of Dixie Belle Paint’s Cotton Chalk Mineral Paint to the table base. Sand with 220-grit sandpaper, and then seal with Gator Hide.

STEP 4 For your chairs, sand and stain the seats as you did the tabletop. Apply two coats of Cotton paint to the chair frames. When dry, sand, and then seal with Gator Hide.
