Other Supplies

Sandpaper, Disposable cloth, Wood side table


  1. Using the Vintage Decor brush, apply 2 coats of Seashell to completely cover the side table in Paint.
  2. Sand the edges of the tabletop and legs to reveal the natural wood underneath.
  3. With a clean disposable cloth, gently apply some Antique Wax to the sanded edges. Immediately wipe away with a separate clean cloth.
  4. Go back over the Antique Wax with a light sanding, only to lighten the color, but not entirely remove. This will create your ‘vintage’ effect.
