Giving Your Furniture That Vintage Look

By Sarah Buchner, Trail Appliances, Calgary

Sometimes all you need to do is re-invent your furniture with a fresh look rather than send it to the curb for someone else to love or even worse – to the dump!  Here’s a DIY to give your table a shabby chic!

Materials Needed:
Paint with primer or primer and paint of your choice
Paper Towel


Remove all hardware and legs


Sand all surfaces then wipe surfaces down with a clean towel or paper towel to remove all the saw dust and debris


After surfaces have been sanded and are clean of all debris, apply your paint with primer. Allow for the coat of paint to dry before applying more coats – 2 to 3 in total till your reach full coverage.


Once paint is dry, lightly sand surfaces and edges to obtain a worn vintage look.


Re-assemble the table. Viola! A lovely new table!
