Entry Table Makeover

Entry Table Makeover | Glidden Paint

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.

Their selection isn’t overwhelming, and when I found Glidden paint’s  Swiss Coffee and Sugared Lime, I found the exact version of green and white that I had envisioned for this table.

1.  Jumping In

I noticed the amazing coverage and hide right away.

The paint was thick, but leveled itself nicely.

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.

4.  Distress

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”.
