Extreme Desk Makeover: Vintage Look On Furniture

Prepping Already Painted Furniture

When I repaint painted furniture, I sand AND clean. I use a higher grit paper to scuff sand and knock down the imperfections. This will give the paint a good surface to adhere to. Once I am finished sanding, I clean really well with White Lightning. As a result the furniture will have a great base to start with to repaint.

Creating A Vintage Look On Furniture

Creating a vintage look on furniture starts with your color choices and design choice. I also used Stamperia’s rice paper in hot air balloon. Rice paper has a vintage look to it which helps achieve this theme on furniture.

Decoupaging To Create A Vintage Look On Furniture

In order to create a vintage look on furniture, decoupage is a wonderful technique to help achieve this. I like to use Satin Clear Coat to decoupage on painted furniture. The first step when decoupaging is to actually cut and fit your paper to the furniture. Once you have the paper cut and fitted, you will need to actually decoupage it. This paper was perfect to create a vintage look on furniture. The first step is painting a layer of the satin clear coat. Afterwards, place the paper down on the furniture. Once you have your paper in the correct place, you will paint the clear coat on top of the paper. As a result you will have a sealed rice paper. You can wait for the paper to dry and add another layer of the clear coat.

Adding Texture

I used cheap chip brushes for this next part. Using Stormy Seas, Vintage Duck Egg, and Coffee Bean I used a stippling method around the edges of the rice paper. I also did this around the edges of the drawers. This helped create a vintage look on furniture.
