How To Paint Furniture To Look Like Wood - 3 Simple Steps

Get a wood like finish with chalk paint and antiquing wax!

First paint your piece with chalk paint - choose white or another light color

Using painters tape, tape off the table top to protect the base

With an inexpensive paint brush, apply antiquing wax in one direction (wax is linked below)

You want it to go on streaky!

Let it dry then go in with a second coat

While still wet, rub along with the grain with a lint free cloth  to blend

Allow to dry then add a top coat of Polycryllic to protect the finish
