Ombre Console Table
by Beau Ford
Painter in Residence Beau Ford transformed this console table with an ombre Chalk Paint® effect and a Moroccan-inspired stencil.
Beau has transformed an unfashionable and dated, dark wooden console in to a striking and bright modern piece, with an ombre finish.
Beau layered and mixed Chalk Paint® in Provence and Greek Blue to create an ombre look on the legs of the table. She then dry-brushed Pure on to the bottom of the legs to highlight the shape and carvings.
To add interest to the top of the console, Beau applied a Moroccan-style stencil with the same three Chalk Paint® colours. She then finished with a layer of Clear Wax followed by a heavy amount of Dark Wax to give an aged and almost golden finish. She distressed the piece with sandpaper, before applying one final coat of Clear Wax to fully protect.
