Faux Painting Furniture Creates a Distinctive Finish
Faux painting furniture is a great way to add a decorative finish to dressers, bookcases tables, or any other type of wood furnishing. Painting a piece of furniture using various techniques – such as marbling, color washing or sponging – makes for a unique finish. These techniques can be used instead of painting furniture a solid color.
There are several types of faux finishes that can be successfully applied to furniture, but before beginning a project, make sure that the furniture is clean, sanded and smooth. If the surface of the furniture has chipping paint or dents, the old paint should be stripped and the dents should be filled with wood filler prior to adding the faux finish.
