Transform a dates Campaign Chest Table into a stunning masterpiece just by using some Chalky Finish Paint and stencils. Come check out how easy and stunning this makeover turned out.
So this Campaign Chest Makeover can go either way, some might really like it and some might say that I ruined a solid wood furniture piece!
But in my defense, I have had this Campaign Chest Table for almost 32 years even before I was born !! So you can imagine that I have been seeing this basic brown piece of furniture for so long that I was dying to give it a makeover at this point.
Let me give you guys a good picture of how it actually looked in its original glory.
So there you have it, some might actually like it, and don’t get me wrong I did actually love this piece but I had had enough and it was time for a change.
And that is what I set out to do to give it a total transformation.
Materials Needed for this Project
I went the complete opposite route and chose a bright Blue Vibrant Color.
I chose a Chalky Paint Finish in the color Treasure from DecoArt.
The thing I absolutely loved about this piece was the beautiful wood carvings and to me, with all the brown colors it seemed like it wasn’t getting the spotlight it deserved.
First I gave the entire table two coats of the Chalky Finish Paint.
That in itself improved the piece so much.
To enhance the carvings I went in with a round fluffy brush and used 24K Metallic Gold by DecoArt and went around the entire wooden carvings.
This instantly enhanced the piece 10 times more.
I painted the drawer pulls all Gold as well.
So for the front part, it was looking a little bare to me.
I decided to use these gorgeous Palm Leaf Stencils by DecoArt as well which I have used on my Copper and Gold Fall Art Wall.
The flower would go in the middle and the leaves would be on either side.
For the top part I decided to use some stencils, which would complement the existing woodcarvings, as well as some flowers.
And on the side of the chest of drawer, I went in with the same Leaf Stencil and stenciled it on either side as well.
And that was basically it.
I absolutely love the results.
