Isn’t this the cutest little table? It was a custom piece I re-did for a client. It definitely needed a refresh and some fixing, but it was a pretty simple process! See below.
THE PREP PROCESS:
I vacuumed off all of the sanding dust
THE PRIMING PROCESS:
I spray-primed the whole piece with a coat of BIN /Shellac to prevent any potential bleed through
Once the Shellac was dry, I lightly hand sanded the piece with 220 grit sandpaper to smooth out the primer
I vacuumed the sanding dust so the surface was nice and clean
THE FIXING PROCESS: Just as a side note, I typically fix my pieces before I prime, but I did this piece backwards because it came apart on me during the priming process.
I filled in the gaps under the table. There wasn’t a lot I could do with this area because the wood had warped. I filled the gaps with caulk to make the piece look nice and complete. Tune in tomorrow for my #TuesdaysTipsWithFallon tutorial so you can see this process.
THE PAINTING PROCESS:
Once the third coat of paint was nice and dry, I distressed the edges with a 220 grit piece of sandpaper
I vacuumed the sanding dust
I applied 3 coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in Flat.
