Hi everyone! It’s Shannon from Wise Little Owl Furniture!
For my color-loving, sunshine-worshiping peeps out there, I hope this little cabinet makes you smile! After painting black for 2 weeks on the dining set last week, it was so refreshing to work with such a bright color palette.
- Cabinet (client-owned)
- White Lightning
- Colonel Mustard
- Best Dang Wax in Brown
- Easy Peasy Spray Wax
- Knobs (Hobby Lobby)
First, I cleaned it really well with White Lightning. Previously, it was painted with latex paint. Therefore, I sanded a bit more than usual to ensure I took off any loose bits and ground down any crazy texture.
Next, I treated each side as its own canvas, painting the Colonel Mustard around the outside and the Daisy in the middle.
After that, I used my spray mister and a clean dry oval brush to blend the 2 colors together. I misted with water and then with a light hand, I just brushed in every direction to blur out any harsh lines. I painted 2 coats, blending both the same way and sanding lightly in between coats.
When it was all dry and lightly sanded once more for a smooth finish, I again went one side at a time. First, I sprayed a roughly 6” x 6” area with the Easy Peasy Spray Wax, and then I spread it out using the applicator pad.
