INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Sand areas of the table that need it, smoothing out the surface. Wipe down the surface with rubbing alcohol and brush the area down with a dry brush to make sure all dust is removed.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Basecoat the rungs of the table in Lace.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint the rest of the table in Honor. Allow to dry overnight.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Mask off the area around the top and bottom of each rung with painter's tape.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using a foam roller and a dry brush, apply Champagne to each rung: Roll the foam roller onto a plate to ensure you will have a thin and even coverage, then roll onto the area. Use a dry brush to smooth out the texture and prevent streaking by gently dragging the brush down from top to bottom, barely applying pressure.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Map out the area for the Distressed Harlequin stencil, leaving a border where necessary. Use a ruler to make sure the stencil is straight and aligned with the edge of the chair, then secure with painter's tape. Mix Honor with a touch of Lace to make a color one shade lighter than the chair. (A subtle contrast is key here.) Apply that mix to the stencil using a cosmetic sponge, dabbing off onto a plate first to make sure you apply a thin and clean coverage.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Continue the stenciling over the entire seat of the chair and the top of the table.
    Step 6 Example
