I couldn’t nail down the word I wanted to use to describe the consistency of Beyond Paint until I was nearly done with the china cabinet makeover. With Beyond Paint, the coverage was similar to Annie Sloan, though.
Even with Annie Sloan, two coats are usually required for full, even coverage.
(: I tried Beyond Paint with a roller on this outdoor patio table, as they recommend, and it definitely gives it more texture, sort of bumpy, but not in a bad way. If you want a smooth surface, you can use a paintbrush, like I did). With any paint, most times you’re going to have to use two coats if you want full coverage. The piece needs to be repaired on the side, though. I had this Anthropologie knob laying around from an old project and decided to use it. it matches if I on the handles to match the Anthropologie brassy color knob.This gorgeous Beyond Paint project was when I repurposed my son’s old toddler bed into a potting bench, using their Poppy color, which was so fun and bright!Lastly, I repurposed a drafting table into an eat-in kitchen table using their Blue.Her table and chairs are staying a natural wood color, but we decided to change the china cabinet to a nice off white with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White. We opted not to distress and age this piece too much, but you can do what you are comfortable with on painting furniture and making them over.I personally think that all of this distressed and sanded down furniture will go the way of faux finished walls eventually.She paid 0 for this large 7’ wide china cabinet by Ashley Furniture, which wasn’t a bad deal for a huge piece like this.
