How to Transform your Kitchen Table

I have a table I would like to paint white or white wash to match our kitchen. What would you recommend to offer the best results?

We Recommend 

Preparation

If your table has been previously sanded or varnished this must be sanded back before your transformation can begin.

Use a 120 grade sand paper and remove all traces of sanding dust before continuing. 

Application

Painted White 

Prime your table with a water based primer such as Ralston Aqua All-Primer. If there are knots in the wood that you wish to cover we recommend Rays Primer which is excellent at spot covering knots and stains. 

 

Allow to dry and follow this with 1-2 topcoats of Ralston in a Matt, Satin, Eggshell or Gloss finish depending on your desired result. 

 

White Wash

If you decide you would like a White Washed finish we recommend Osmo Polyx Oil. This will allow you to let  the grain of the wood show through. This product can be tinted to the shade of white you are looking for to complete your transformation.
