Hi! I have a couple of questions. I have a coffee table and two end tables just like the table you did in your shop.
It is the one with the wisteria bottom and the top is a blend of colonial blue, bayberry, putty, and parchment. My question is: my coffee table is black with a dark walnut top. How many coats do you think it will to cover the black and do I need to sand in between each coat? I ordered all of the colors in the textured base coat line and have two coats of wisteria on and I can still see black through it. Is this normal. I have enclosed a picture of what I am talking about. Thank you so much. I am excited to see how this project turns out!!!! Carrie
… Okey – so you’re table is dark – if you look at my finish, you can see some of the wood color coming through – yours could come through but just be darker…
If you want most of your dark color covered then you might need 2 layers of dragging those colors – and no, I wouldn’t sand in between – no need to… just paint it thinner…
I love your table props! My bottom was white to start with…. you’ll need more wisteria on your bottom – brush another full coat of wisteria over that base – don’t water it down… you should be white then….
I got all three tables done and they are holding up great!! People are so impressed and I have been recommending your website and paint. I am including a couple of pictures of the finished project.
Thanks again for your help,
Love them Carrie!
Thank you for sharing your project!
