World Market Console Table Makeover:  Painted Black

I have been wanting to change the look of our entry way/foyer for awhile now, and knew that it had to start with changing out the entry table.  But I also knew that buying a new table wasn’t in the budget, which meant Plan B – time to pull out the paint brushes -ugh!  And since I  had already painted our World Market entry console table smoky blue  (years ago) to go with our coastal farmhouse look, this will now be it’s second makeover.  But this time- I chose black, and I love it!  So, who’s ready for this quick and easy 3-step tutorial?  Here is our World Market Console Table Makeover:  Painted Black.

Ok, let’s get ready to see the 3 easy steps for World Market Console Table Makeover:  Painted Black!

 


World Market Console Table Makeover: Painted Black

3 Steps:

  • 1)  Sand it/Wipe clean (or Prime if raw, unpainted wood)
  • 2)  Paint Black with paint brush/roller
  • *Optional – Distress/Sand it
  • 3)  Seal it with polyurethane

NOTE:

Just wanted to start off here to say that my table was already painted blue so:

  1.   I started step #1: with sanding.
  2.   I also wanted my blue paint color to peek through (otherwise I would have primed it first also).
  • *** If your table is the original color (raw wood or never been painted), your step #1:  will be priming- one coat.  Let Dry.  And continue with step #2.

Ok, just wanted to clarify so there was no confusion!  

Let’s get to the 3 Easy Steps.

 


Step #1:  Sand Table/Wipe Clean

You will need to sand down (or prime) your console table so that the black paint can adhere to it.

  • I chose 100-grit sandpaper for my console table, so that it would make deeper grooves.

Then make sure to wipe your table off with a clean rag, to remove all of the dust.

For those of you who have been following along with the blog and the first table makeover:

  • Remember that scratch mark on the top right side – that our table got (when we flooded)? 
  • Yep – still there underneath the blue paint!
  • Well, I made for sure it really got sanded out good this time around – lol!!

Step #2:  Paint Black with Paint Brush/Roller

Prep Area & Remove Drawers:

Now, you will prep your painting area with plastic floor covering, and remove the drawers.

TIP:  To remove/release the drawers, just press the little plastic strip-thingy (lol) gently, in a backward motion (see below). 

I have already taken the drawer out in the picture below, but just wanted to show you where the button is underneath the table.

Paint First Coat (just using Paint Brush):

After you have prepped your area, it’s time to beginning painting!

You will begin painting the top portion with you paint brush, using nice long strokes.  Don’t worry about getting it covered completely because you will put on a 2nd coat later.

Then carefully put your drawers back in, and paint those too.

Let this dry for 24 hours before adding second coat.

Paint Second Coat (using Paint Brush & Roller):

For this part, you will will use both the paint brush and the roller brush. 

I used the paint brush first to get into the tricky parts of the table, and followed up behind it with the roller brush.

TIP:  The roller brush doesn’t leave brush marks – love it!!

After you have finished your second coat, let it dry for 24 hours.  


OPTIONAL STEP:  Sanding to Distress

This step is completely optional.

  • I wanted some light distressing so that the blue color and natural wood color would show through the black paint. 
  • If you do not want to sand your table down, just skip to step #3.

This is what it looks like at this stage.

I used 220-grit sandpaper to lightly distress corners and edges for a natural look, and a little more firmly to let the blue paint peek through.

Make sure to wipe your table off if you’ve sanded – before going to the last step.

 


Step #3:  Seal it With Polyurethane

Now you will apply your water-based polyurethane to your black console table to seal it. 

  • I used an oil-based, semi-gloss polyurethane for mine (only because I already had it on hand).

*** I definitely recommend using water-based poly for easier clean up!!

Apply the polyurethane with your foam brush using long, even strokes. 

  • Then allow it to dry for 24 hours, before bringing it back into your house.
  • Wait for 72 hours before placing items on the top and bottom shelves.
