HOW TO GIVE YOUR OLD AND BORING FURNITURE AN UPDATE BY ADDING TEXTURE AND DESIGN! [VIDEO]
Happy Tuesday SI family, thanks for joining me today!
I once heard that models and famous celebrities won’t wash their hair before important events. The natural dirt and oils add volume which makes the hair easier to work with. They work in their fancy hair products and voila, gorgeous texture and style!
Well, today I’m sharing how to create gorgeous texture and style on your old-boring-flat-furniture. The only difference is I encourage you to give it a really thorough cleaning before you start. I’ve painted plenty of flat furniture with raised stencils and I’ll include some of these 3D textured makeovers in the “Related Posts” below. Today I’m trying a fancy new product to create some dimension and volume on these old flat nightstands. And I have to admit I LOVE the way these turned out!
Here’s the before and after. What do you think?

How To Apply A Raised Stencil::
STEP #1:: Clean, Sand and Prime
I started by giving this piece a super good cleaning with vinegar and water, a light sanding and then primed with BIN Shellac Primer.
STEP #2:: Paint
The nightstands were given a base coat of this white and then I added Coffee Bean in the areas I knew I was going to distress with a light sanding. Around the perimeter and edges where a piece would more naturally age.
