Want to create a stunning masterpiece with lots of character then check out this Southwestern-Inspired Thrifted Table Makeover.
It’s high time I confessed to you guys that I have a severe obsession with the Southwestern Design and to name a few you guys can see my Southwestern Inspired Bowl Makeover, my DIY Southwestern Canvas Art, Aztec Table Makeover and tons more.
I literally have a whole board on my Pinterest page dedicated solely to anything and everything Southwestern so that should tell ya something!
There’s just something about the patterns and the play on the color that Southwestern gets me every time plus I don’t think I’ve ever come across anyone who doesn’t like it.
Materials Needed for This Project
D Lawless Hardware Leaf Drawer Pulls
The table was nothing special but it had that flat surface that I wanted for the Southwestern Design hence I bought it.
It was in pretty decent condition except for the top.
The top was a hot mess. It needed some major sanding before I started painting it.
Since I knew my pattern on the table was going to be Bold and Colorful hence I wanted to keep everything else completely neutral therefore I went with my Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in White.
I filled up my HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer with the paint and sprayed it away. The results as always are flawless with the sprayer.
I needed about two coats of white, I even painted the inside of the drawers white. I just wanted everything completely White!
When the paint was all done it was time for the fun part as well as the not-so-fun part.
The not-so-fun part is taping out a Southwestern pattern on top of the drawers and of course, the fun part is painting the table.
It took me a while to get the pattern right and I did trace out the design with a pencil first before putting masking tape on it.
Then finally I got to play with these beautiful Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paints.
From shades of blue to yellow to greens to red to black you name it. I just wanted to go crazy with the colors.
My plan was to incorporate all these colors one strip at a time horizontally. So without any particular order, I started painting away with whatever color I thought felt right and just went with it.
When that was all done I did use my Gold Liquid Gilding after every color just because I think everything looks better with Gold in it and because I wanted to add some metallic finish in the mix 😉
When I took off my masking tape I also went over the corners of the Southwestern Pattern with the Gold so to give it cleaner lines.
When everything was completely dry I went in with my Satin Varnish and gave the table a good coat of it.
For only the front part of the table, the drawers I sprayed with a High Gloss Spray to give it an extra shine.
Lastly, for the hardware part, the table’s existing knobs were just some plain silver round one but for this particular table, I wanted to use this beautiful leaf-shaped hardware.
I received these leaves from D. Lawless Hardware. I mean How cute are these!!!
So off went the old door knobs and in came these pretty little leaves.
I did say that was the last part but I ended up using some Gold Liquid Gilding on the legs of the table as well.
Now I can officially say it was complete.
What do you guys think ?
The leaves look so pretty.
And that was my version of the Southwestern Design.
