Question from Charlotte:


Answer: sand, paint and whitewash

Hello Charlotte, you want to darken your table in light oak to give it an aged and gray appearance. For this, I advise you to first sand it with coarse grit paper, dust it and then you will apply a dark gray acrylic paint, mat finish. Then after drying, apply a whitewash paste, available in large DIY stores, using a brush diluted in white spirit. Then wipe with a lint-free cloth and shine the next day! Your ceruse coffee table will go perfectly with your taupe sofa and will be highlighted by your white carpet! You too, send us your decoration question
