However, they are all the same or very similar, for this reason, if you want to add personality and a touch of originality to your auxiliary table this is the spray paint you will need:

In they project we have used as you can see in the photo the green color, but you can choose between all these colors: black; gray; blue and red. You will find that not only will you break the monotony of the table with the ambient, but also the paint will give an iron effect look to the wooden legs.

Use the Pintyplus chalk paint to paint the wood

At this level, the spray paint from Pintyplus is used to color the wood.

First apply a thin coat.

Immediately after, without letting it dry, pass a moistened sponge to drag a part, just a small part without applying to much force of the paint. In this way you will be able to highlight the vein of the wood and give it a different light according to the chosen tone. In this case the colors used were the ash gray, brown, blue, green or any of the Pintyplus chalk color range.

Remember also that chalk paint, thanks to its porous finish, will help you to achieve a ‘shabby chic’ effect, more realistic than other types of paints such as the enamels. You can find more information about Pintyplus chalk paint.
