TV Console

TV Console Makeover

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Supplies

  • Chalk paint (Americana Decor)
  • Creme wax (Americana Decor Transparent and Dark Wax)
  • Paint brushes or foam brushes
  • Sand paper
  • Clean rags

Steps

  1. Clean surface of entertainment center (sand if necessary but chalk paint is pretty thick and doesn’t require a lot of prep work).
  2. Remove drawers and hardware.
  3. Paint top and drawers gray. Paint other portions white (2 coats).
  4. Once dry use sand paper to lightly distress. Especially on corners and sides.
  5. On the top and drawers I painted light strokes of white on top of gray for a more worn/distressed look. In places it was too light I sanded more white off or topped with a little bit more gray.
  6. Apply a light layer of creme wax with a clean rag on all surfaces.
