HER DIY: Seeing Spots

Lifestyle / Stories / November 6, 2016

Using Wood Icing® and Chalk Paint®, Jill Bednar, owner of Southbank Gift Company, creates a textured, three-dimensional look on an outdated coffee table.  Don’t buy new! Just re-do, and tell your own story.

No priming or sanding necessary. Prep your piece by cleaning it with Krud Kutter©. You may wipe down again with a clean damp cloth to remove any residual cleaner or debris.

Choose your stencil and position the stencil where you would like and tape down.

step2Spread Wood Icing® thinly over the stencil and then gently lift stencil up.

Let the Wood Icing® dry completely.  When dry, lightly sand over entire surface to take peaks or higher
edges off.

Paint over entire surface and your raised impression with the Chalk Paint® decorative paint color of your choice (we used Old Ochre).

When paint is dry, lay your stencil back over your raised design, matching exactly, and stencil your contrasting color on (we used French Linen & Graphite).  Lift stencil up and set aside.

When paint is dry, apply Chalk Paint® Wax. Buff the surface to smooth out wax and remove any excess.
