Transform Your Furniture From Boring To Soaring
From the minute I started mixing it I fell in love. I’ve never seen anything transform furniture like Salt Wash. You’ll get to achieve any look you like from shabby chic to that beachy vibe in no time at all.
When I saw this “almost” curbside table I knew I had to rescue it. I say almost curbside as I ended up paying $20 for it which equates to the “almost” part. I knew it had potential and with Salt Wash, I could easily transform it into a beautiful piece to be enjoyed.
It was kind of a mess and needed some love to restore it back to beautiful. I also wanted to give this piece a coastal beachy look and I love the way it turned out. I knew sea green paint colors would help me get there.
I started by prepping the table. I wanted all of that old varnish gone to have a clean slate to start with.
You can use any paint you like with Salt Wash! Yep! It can be any finish paint as well. You get to decide.
I started with the darker shade of sea green first. That’s what I used for Salt Wash. The second coat was about 4 shades lighter sea green. All you do is mix Salt Wash into your paint and stir to achieve the desired look. It’s supposed to be painted on very “gloopy”. Let the first coat dry and after it dries, you paint your second coat without Salt Wash – wait until it all dries and sand.

Once you have the coverage you need, let it sit to dry. It dried pretty quickly. You can do some light sanding at this phase to smooth out some of the bumps.
I then applied my second coat of paint which was the lighter shade of sea green over the top of the coat with the Salt Wash.
Next step and last is the sanding. You can choose to sand as much or as little as you like. Once you achieve your desired look, you are ready to go. It doesn’t need a sealer or any type of top coat but again, your preference. I chose not to use one for this end table as I wanted that beachy worn and weathered look.
I just love the depth and dimension you get from using Salt Wash. The sanding exposed the beautiful underlayer of darker green giving it that worn and weathered beachy look I was looking to achieve.
I changed the hardware and again, a quick and stunning transformation.
This little end table has added that extra element to my living room that I was looking for.
I love the contrast of colors and tonality of the entire end table.
Adding your favorite decorative elements really brings out the beauty of the end table.
I hope you get to experience the multitude of looks and styles you get from using Salt Wash. I know I’ll be creating a lot more transformations with it!
