Sofa Table Before & After

Tuesday, 9 August 2011

This sofa table was brought to me a few weeks ago and the owner gave me a picture of a finish she wanted me to try. I couldn't take the picture from the email to post it here though.

Here is the before


I sanded it down and painted it a soft white. Then I used 2 different Cabot stains to achieve the bluish/grayish/greenish distressed color she was looking for. I dry brushed them on and then distressed. I sent pictures to my client and she said "why don't I come over and show you how to age/distress with a heat gun". I'd never heard of this, but it's pretty cool! This "client" is actually a friend and mentor, so it's weird for me to call her a client. Coolest.gal.ever!!

She came over and we sanded and made the paint "bubbly" with the heat gun. Then we took a scraper and scraped it off. I think I got the technique pretty well...I just wish I hadn't distressed so much before using the heat gun.

Here's how it turned out
