This piece is in good shape. It needed a good cleaning and if I am being honest that hardware as cute as it is, is NOT BOHO.
Every once in a while the universe is nice to us and as a result we don’t have to patch up holes for new hardware. This however was NOT one of those times.
I made sure after I took the hardware off, I cleaned the piece, look how dirty it was under those handles! My favorite wood filler is Dixie Mud! It is durable but sands easily, you can actually even use a damp rag to wipe away excess once it has dried.
Before I add the texture I put a base coat of paint down. For this piece I used Antebellum Blue.
For this part I used the NEW Stick N’ Style Stencils from Redesign With Prima, they are sticky so they are perfect for people like me who are terrible at stenciling. I randomly placed different colors on top of where the stencil was. I didn’t wait for the paint to try to remove the stencil.
Let’s Add Texture!
I added four different colors for texture, Peony, Daisy, Florida Orange and Pure Ocean. I am going to should you how I mixed and applied Pure Ocean. Once I mixed the sea spray and paint mix, I applied it in random areas across the piece.
Once the paint and texture was completely dried, I paint over all of the texture with Antebellum Blue.
Once the paint was dried, I used sand paper (120 grit) to reveal the colors underneath. LOOK HOW COOL!
Once everything was finished I sealed it with Easy Peasy Spray Wax by Dixie Belle.
