Shabby chic bedside table is a style of furniture that is absolutely stunning. Not only does it look posh and high end but at the same time it is incredibly easy to DIY. A lot of people are under the impression that shabby chic furniture is very costly. They are sadly mistaken. You can transform your bedside tables into your favorite shabby chic style right away by simply following these steps:
It is important to prep your wood beforehand. Remove any previous finishing in order to make sure that the wood is ready for its new makeover.
Painting without a primer is a bad idea. You should remember to apply a water based acrylic primer after cleaning your wood.
One layer of paint is never enough. You will undoubtedly need to apply two layers of paint. Make sure that the first one is completely dry before applying the second.
Play It Up
If you want to keep it simple, then you can stick to one color of paint. However, if you want a distressed look for your shabby chic bedside table then you need two shades of paint. Only thing to note this time is to rub away the second layer of paint after it dries up. This will reveal the first layer and grant you with a natural shabby appearance.
The best part about shabby chic bedside table is that even if you are terrible when it comes to painting, you will still be fine. It is a rugged look that does not judge too harshly.
