Hi, sweet creative friends! It’s Denise from Salvaged Inspirations! Today, let’s learn how to restore an entry hall table!
- Entry table
- White Lightning (Cleaner)
- Paint Sprayer | Paint Roller
- Orbital Sander | Sandpaper
- Slick Stick (Adhesion Primer)
- WoodUBend Applique #2157
- Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint Whitecap
- Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint Harbor
- Best Dang Wax in White
I started by cleaning this piece with White Lightning and then giving it an overall scuff sanding with #120 grit sandpaper. This table had a gorgeous sunburst inlaid top which I was originally going to stain but unfortunately, while trying to get out some dings and scratches, I sanded through the veneer in a few places. Uggghhh. So, I decided on a white top and blue bottom using white wax to highlight WoodUBend details and these gorgeous legs. You just have to go with the flow with these mishaps.
Before priming or painting, I added these WoodUbend designs to the front and sides of the table. These appliques are SO fun to work with and are easy to customize. I used applique #2157 which was too large for the table so I warmed it up with my heat gun and cut it down to size with a utility knife.
Because this table has a factory finish, I decided to use Slick Stick. I only applied it to the body of the table because the top was stripped down to a raw veneer and didn’t need an adhesion primer.
