Instructions:

  1. Use a damp paper towel to wipe down the surface of the telephone table. Allow to dry.
     
  2. Use a screwdriver to remove the door, door handle, drawer, and drawer pull from telephone table.


     
  3. Using a 2" flat brush, paint a coat of Remembrance on the table. Allow to dry. Repeat.
     
  4. Using a 2" flat brush, paint a coat of Relic on the front of the drawer and door. Allow to dry. Repeat.
     
  5. Dry-brush Everlasting across the surface of the table. (Don’t dry-brush door or drawer.) Allow to dry.


     
  6. Buff Luminous Gold over the surface of the table with a paper towel or soft cloth. (This gives the table a slightly-metallic finish.) Allow to dry.


     
  7. Attach number stencils as shown to the front of the door with painter's tape. Use a stencil brush to apply Yesteryear to the stencils. Remove the stencils. Allow to dry.


     
  8. Tape off the openings to apply the very tip of the Traditional Medallion corner stencil to the top front and left edge. Use a stencil brush to apply Yesteryear. Remove the stencil. Allow to dry.
     
  9. Use fine-grit sandpaper to sand the edges exposing the wood beneath.


     
  10. Paint a coat of Clear Crème Wax to seal the table. Allow to dry.
     
  11. Dry-brush a small amount of Deep Brown Crème Wax to create an antiqued finish. Allow to dry.

 

Notes:

  • If you wish to give the surface a more antiqued finish, use a hammer or large chain to distress the surface before you begin adding paint.
