Fix it Friday – How to Add a Pop of Color

photo 3


It is easy to refinish a Nadeau piece if you know how! One of our customers wanted a “pop” of color added to our beautiful hand-carved chairs so we used the dry brush painting technique to create this color-wash finish.

Materials: Paint, gloves, damp rag, paper or paper plate

Time: 15 minutes

1. Dip brush in color

2. Brush off onto paper or paper plate

3. Brush on item you are painting

4. Repeat steps until fully painted

Tip 1: Test color underneath chair first by turning upside down on a sturdy table

Tip 2: When color is too heavy for your liking take damp rag and rub away the paint until satisfied

Yes, it’s as easy as that!
