Achieve a “Chippy” Look Without Sanding or Distressing!

Giving a table a rustic, worn, chippy look is fun with our new Overlay Tool!

When Francine and I decided to add the Overlay Tool to the Designer In You Line we knew we needed a great rustic piece to use for this tutorial. Zach Mays of Vintage Colorz immediately came to mind.  He is a amazing furniture designer/ carpenter. I asked him if we could paint one of his pieces and he happily obliged.

 

 

Step 1: I applied a light coat of Totally Taupe (Matte) to the bottom of overlay tool and slide it over the base of the table reapplying paint as needed.

 

 

Step 2: I applied Dark Chocolate Truffle (Matte)

 

 

Step 3: For this step I mixed Texture Toscana and White As Snow (Matte) together into a bowl until I had a paste-like consistency and applied to Overlay Tool.

 

Step 4:  I applied a color from our Color-Match Collection: Florence (Matte)

Step 5: I dipped my Cling On R14 into our Dark Antiquing Glaze and brushed it on randomly to create a aged look, wiping away any excess Glaze.

 

 

Not applying paint to the bottom of the table legs adds a more authentic age-worn look.

 

Tips:

  • Remove paint from bottom of Overlay Tool by wiping with a damp rag before adding a different color
  • Allow layers to dry before applying your next color
