Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing the new and improved Floral End Table! If you recall this was a table that I had redone with a really pretty blended technique and the Redesign With Prima Ruby Rose Transfer. You can see the tutorial on the original Floral End Table HERE. Below is a picture of the former floral beauty.
I know, who really wants to redo a piece? Especially after you’ve put in so much work and you love the results. Unfortunately this table had been moved around a bit while in inventory and had also fallen victim to my husband’s cat. The table had some scuffs and scratches and I could no longer sell it in that state. It was better to redo it again. And I have to tell you, I’m so glad I did! I got too try out a new technique and it came out simply beautiful.

I wanted to preserve the transfer on this piece because I absolutely love all the beautiful bouquets and colors. Through paint layering and light distressing, I was able to achieve a look where the transfer blended into the back ground. It needed to be a seamless look if this was going to work!
- Behr’s Arid Plains Paint (chalked like so)
- Behr’s Royal Raisin Paint (chalked like so)
- Behr’s Boreal Paint (chalked like so)
- DecoArt Bronze Metallic Paint
- Prima Old Denim Metallique Wax
- Round Chalk Paint Brush
- Clear Coat, Satin
The best way for me to demonstrate to you how I achieved this beautiful old world look is through a video. Take a look…
Paint layering is a technique I love because it adds depth and character and is VERY forgiving. You can’t really make a mistake with this technique. It is simply art.
I used DecoArt’s Antique Bronze Metallic Paint to add a beautiful sheen around the piece. I simply rubbed around edges or corners with my finger. A little goes a long way with this small bottle.
If you’d like to see how I applied the transfer to this piece during its first renovation, you can watch the video below or click HERE.
I also completed this look on a matching dresser. The dresser came out OH so beautiful! If you’d like to see all the pictures of the dresser, click HERE.
