DIY Tutorial for Farmhouse “Primitive” Look Furniture


Have a piece of furniture that totally needs a face lift?

I did. I gave this small end table a new look using three quick steps. (under and hour!)
This technique can be used for anything wooden. Cupboards, shelves, coffee tables, etc. And you can use whatever color latex paint you like. I think the nicest results come from using black, cranberry, sage green and mustard colored bases. I usually use Minwax Jacobean Stain.

I put together this how-to video for painting furniture with a distressed, old, farmhouse finish. Enjoy!
