DIY Glamorous Blended Sideboard

Hi everyone! It’s Connie from FAFF Designs! Ready to get your blend on? Read on to find out how to create a glamorous blended sideboard!

Materials List:

How To:

Step 1:

First step as always, is to give the piece a thorough clean with White Lightning. This removes dirt, grime and grease build up and also works towards de-glossing your piece. Always make sure to rinse the White Lightning with clean warm water to remove any residue. I also removed all the of the handles at this stage.

Step 2:

Next I took off the glossy finish using my electric sander. This piece had a very high gloss, shiny finish which needs breaking down in order to allow the paint to grip. Before you crack out your paint, you need to give the piece a wipe down with a rag or microfiber cloth to remove any dust.

Step 3:

The colour I used as my base was Coffee Bean. I love using this colour under red as it adds depth and richness to the red tones. I used the Flat Large brush along with the water mister bottle for fast and full coverage.

Step 4:

Once this base colour was completely dry I started to plan out where I wanted my colours to go. I used four different brushes, one for each colour to apply the paint. (Initially I did start to use Honky Tonk Red but decided later to leave this colour out). At this stage I did not blend or overlap the colours. I just mapped the colours out on the piece. It always helps to stand back and look at the piece from a distance to check you’re happy with the placement of colours so far. At this stage DO NOT panic that it looks like a hot mess!!!
