Do you love the look of barn wood and yet cannot find it locally? If you have a piece of furniture that you would like to finish to look like barn wood this tutorial from White Picket Farmhouse will help you achieve that look.
With furniture wax and chalk paint, the original harsh black sofa table turned into aged barn wood instantly. The key to applying wax is to brush it on in a circular motion and then wipe. The wax dries very quickly so you will want to plan the time to do this step. For this look, they applied the dark wax first and then applied the clear wax. The overall design softened the look of the sofa table in the room. One of the advantages of using the chalk paint is to eliminate having to sand the piece down first.
If you are new to chalk paint, there are several tutorials available to teach you how to use it. This sofa table turned out nicely and looked great in a modern farmhouse decor.
