How to blend Chalk Paint on Blue and Gold Side Table

I chose this piece for my first start to finish tutorial on Facebook live because if was a great size and shape for teaching on camera. We did this piece over the course of 4 weeks to create this romantic little side table.

Success! You're on the list.

The first step was to clean well with Dixie Belle White Lightning. Then sand away any damaged areas, and remove the hardware for cleaning. This piece did not require priming, so we were able to move right into laying on a base coat.

Once our colors were laid on, I decided to throw a curve ball and talk about what happens when you aren’t happy with color choices and want to make a change? With Dixie Belle Paint, color changes do not need to be a worry.

Now that our new color scheme is laid on, the second coat is where we perfect the blending and get our finish just right and set it with a coat of Dixie Belle Gator Hide. I then added Black Wax to bring out the carved details.

The final step of this were the finishing touches! This includes waxing our drawer glides, oiling the drawer boxes, adding gilding waxes, etc.

The final look is a smoothly blended cinderella side table!

Bio:I wanted to take a chance to introduce myself, I am Brandy Kollenborn, a furniture painter from Sacramento, CA and owner and artisan behind  “Brushed By Brandy”. I'm a stay at home mom of 3 boys, Noah 11, Ashton 8, and Logan 5, married for 16 years to my favorite furniture cameraman, repairman and delivery person, Sean. I have a degree in finance and left my career with The State of CA to stay home when my youngest son was born, with no clue what my next step would be, it was a leap of faith!The first pieces I did were a bedroom set in 2016 that tenants left behind in our rental, it was beat up, but solid wood, and I had nothing to lose, it was either going to the curb or I could make something of it. I've always been on the crafty/artistic side so this was a great way to express that on huge canvases. My hobby has turned into a booming little business, most of my pieces are sold before I create them and designed alongside my customer. My style is blended, smooth, colorful statement pieces for any room.I'm proud to partner with The Dixie Belle Paint company and Prima Marketing group creating sample pieces, lives, and blogging tutorials at brushedbybrandy.com. We are in the process of building our forever home on 5 acres for our boys, it will be my biggest custom project to date :) and I love sharing that journey on my page and in a blog as well. We are project people through and through, don't know how to sit still.I'm so appreciative of the support, my confidence wavers all the time, I love answering questions and connecting with other creatives, this community has been so welcoming to me and I hope I can return that! I’m so grateful for this opportunity, I never imagined there would be interest in me painting furniture in my garage!Facebook.com/brushedbybrandyInstagram.com/brushedbybrandyYoutube.com/brushedbybrandyBrushedbybrandy.com
