From crusty old bench to saltwash sweetness
It’s that time of the month when I show you all what piece I’ve entered in the Fab Flippin’ Furniture contest. This months theme was coastal. And as many of you all know if you’ve been following me for a while I’m not very coastal more of a black & white lady. But wait till you all see how I turned a crusty old bent to saltwash sweetness. Oh yes I ‘ve fallen in love with this months sponsor…

Just click on below to be taken to their site.
You will really want to to watch this video to see how fast and easy it is to completely transform practically anything into layered, textured, beachy goodness. I’ve totally gone coastal. This was a great product to work with so easy to mix up.
I used two similar blue paints I had left over from other projects. Let dry taped off without sanding yet and did the top coat with a dry brush white paint. Took off my tape soon as I finished the wait I’ve heard if you remove tape while paint still moist you get crisper lines. I then let it dry off and gave it a quick lite sanding and am totally loving this look.
A big thanks to Saltwash for providing the Saltwash I needed for this project. Someone will win this contest and they will receive a prize package from Saltwash and Saltwater Salvage Design.
his is a sponsored post. Saltwash provide each of us a ‘bucket” of Saltwash to use on our piece. But all opinions are 100% my own.
Thanks to the awesome women that coordinate this whole Fab Furniture Flippin’ contest. I’m loving this experience.

Here’s a close up of the saltwash sweetness.
- Use differing paint colors for the Saltwash coat and final coat to give contrast and really show the layers of paint.
- Using a higher gloss or Satin finish for the final coat adds to an authentic look as if it was salvaged from an old beach cottage… back when oil and lead paints were used 😉
- Try multiple layers of Saltwash to add more interest.
- A light coat of wax in a brown tone will add to an authentic vintage look.
As always thanks so much for stopping by &
