Side Table Makeover with Fusion Paints

blue end table makeover with fusion paint


You guys are going to be shocked.

I painted a piece of furniture in my house with something other than chalk paint. Now don’t get too excited, I still love my chalk paint, but there are lots of other paint brands to be explored, so I thought it was time to start experimenting. I heard about Fusion Mineral Paint from a blogging friend of mine, and she highly recommended that I give them a try. I ordered four colors with a few specific projects in mind. Shown clockwise is Picket Fence, Inglenook, Homestead Blue, and Bedford Gray.

Isn’t the label on the paint jar so cute? I would agree with that statement! I decided a side table makeover was a good place to begin experimenting with this paint. I liked the black on my side table, but I wanted something a little lighter in this space.

I decided to try out the Bedford Gray shade first. I thought it looked a little different in the bottle than it did on the swatch card. On the swatch, it looked more of a true gray,  which is what I was looking for, but the paint looked a bit more griege to me. I decided to use it anyway thinking maybe it would look more gray after it dried.

Once it was dry, I felt it still looked more griege than true gray. The color was nice, but I have so much beige in my family room already that I wanted the end table to be different. I really loved the Homestead Blue shade, so I decided to layer that over the Bedford Gray. The blue compliments this room nicely, it brings out the darker blues in my area rug.

It also gives a nice contrast to the beige wing chairs. I gave the table a light sanding in a few spots to give it a slightly distressed look.
