If ever there was a table that needed some color, this is it.
Sitting in the same spot in my home for two years, it has largely gone unnoticed.
Time for a paint job.
Glidden® paint has a simplified palette that helped me avoid the decision fatigue I usually experience when
deciding on a paint color.
1. Jumping In
I noticed the amazing coverage and hide right away.
The paint was thick, but leveled itself nicely.
(I did two coats of Glidden paint: “Swiss Coffee” and “Sugared Lime”.)
2. Tape It Up
After about 30 minutes, the paint was dry.
I wanted a pattern on top, so I used painter’s tape to lay out my lines.
3. Painting Over Tape
Next, I painted over the tape-covered top, removing tape immediately after the paint was applied.
When the last coat was dry, (30 min.) I took a scraper to the finish to give it a vintage feel.
5. To someone like me, a paint’s “true colors” come through when the distressing starts.
What I mean is: To an artistic painter, how well it comes off, is as important as how well it goes on…
…and as I can easily say:
Glidden paint blew me away.
I didn’t expect it to look so authentic when I took the scraper to it.
Although it was very obvious that Glidden paint is highly durable, I was very happy to see the way it chipped, as I worked to add years to the paint’s appearance.
So there you have it.
I’m extremely happy!
Not only did I manage to add a new element of color to a room with this table, but I found out how easy Glidden paint is to work with.
In my book, that’s called a “great day”.
