Have you seen the growing trend for Driftwood Finished Furniture? You know the designer look that you see in all the magazines from Pottery Barn, Arhaus Furniture, and Ethan Allen. Since painted furniture is growing in popularity over dark wood finishes, you can take your dark wood furniture and create a driftwood paint effect and save money by doing it yourself and also save an old outdated piece of furniture.
This driftwood finish paint technique can be created on any piece of furniture or home decor accessory.
I applied the driftwood paint effect on these pieces above for a client/friend. She had purchased a shelving unit from Arhaus Furniture and wanted these pieces to match her shelves.
In this workshop, you see the step by step process on actual furniture pieces and not just a small sample board. I like to teach paint techniques on actual pieces of furniture so you can see the end result and not have to imagine what the furniture piece would look like on a small sample board.
In part 2 of the workshop, I teach you how to mix 1 base paint color to make the 3 different paint colors needed for the driftwood paint effect. You will learn how to mix the paints and the proper ratios of water to paint needed to create the driftwood effect. I show you using 2 different base color paints and sample boards to show you the final result of mixing paints and water.
In the “Driftwood Paint Effect” Workshop you will learn to achieve the popular “driftwood” look with paint. You will learn 4 EASY steps involved in creating a driftwood effect on furniture, home decor, cabinets or walls. You will see the step by step transformation on actual furniture pieces. No need to spend extra money of 3 or 4 different paint colors, I teach you how to mix 1 base paint color to make the 3 different paint colors needed for the driftwood paint effect. You will learn how to mix the paints and the proper ratios of water to paint needed to create the driftwood effect.
