How to Distress & Paint a Harlequin Pattern

This side table is simply charming!

I used Fluff and Caviar to create this pretty piece. Be sure to clean with White Lightning first!

You can watch me paint this table LIVE in this video below. I give all sorts of cleaning and prep tips….along with focusing on the overall harlequin design.



I also knew I wanted an aged and worn finish… I only used one coat of each color…which means this project was done in a flash! I decided to paint the harlequin pattern on both the top surface and the smaller lower surface. That was not my original plan…but it looked unfinished otherwise. Now……I think its just perfect!

      Hi Cody, you can get a look similar to this after painting the pattern and using a circular sander over top. Hope this helps! Here’s another blog about distressing: Have a great day and happy painting! 🙂
