For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may or may not have seen my IG Insta Story last week on how I transformed a little end table in my house from blue to white. I got so many DM’s after that video with questions, and people telling me they were now ready to tackle their first paint project! So, guess what?!
I love to paint, and I love helping others learn how to paint. So, I figured out a way to piece together my story, so that I could get it in one continuous video for y’all. Insta Stories are great, but the disappear after 24 hours. Now….disclaimer! This is not professional editing. This is not a high tech video. And it sounds choppy because it is little 15 seconds snippets, that have been put all together. Please give me a little grace here! Haha.
Here is what happened. We have slowly been transforming our downstairs living room and kitchen area. I painted this little end table in Blackberry House Paint, in the color Well Water back a few years ago. I LOVE that color, but with everything we have done to the room I wanted to lighten it up in….WHITE OF COURSE 😉
Here is the before
On a day at home that was suppose to be somewhat lazy, in true Stacey fashion I decided on a whim to go ahead and paint that bad boy! I walked y’all through the process with me on Instagram from start to finish. You may have read my painting tutorial here. This video would be a great thing to watch along with reading the tutorial. After those 2, you should be confident and ready to give it a go!
I am a retailer for Blackberry House paint, and that is the paint I used in this video. I will stress again that this technique DOES NOT work for latex or spray paints. You need to use a true furniture paint, chalk paint, etc. to get these same results. Check for a Blackberry House or other retailer close to you!
Check out my video below on how I took this piece from Blue paint to White!
Do y’all see how not scary that was?! Do not let fear stop you from giving this a try! If you are feeling scared, you need to read this because I can bet you fall into some of these categories. You can do it, I promise. Start small and paint some frames or candlesticks if you are really nervous. Then move up to a small piece just like this one. As always, if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments. I’m always happy to help.
Here are a few pictures of the process along the way!
Until next time…
