We love this extreme transformation of your very common kiwi outdoor table, you can still purchase these new at The Warehouse or Mitre 10. Not very stylish, but functional, sometimes you can find them discarded at the second hand or op shop for little to nothing.  You know the ones... glass top, metal legs and some type of plastic discs through the centre.

We wanted to take something that wasn't overly stylish, carved or curvy and show how you can still add Artisan Flair to even the plainest piece with a bit of vision. From plain and common to feature table with strong Artisan Flair  and we have a video below for you to see how this one was done make sure you read some of the "pointers" below the Video  too. 

When there's little to no prep, Artisanal products that are fast drying with low VOCS anything is possible, your limited only by your imagination...

What we did: 

Hand Painted the legs and frame of the table in Indie Gold 
Glass Table top in Stone Effects in Elephant Dust 
Plastic discs in Clubhouse Grey Premium Chalk Paint and Arcadian Silver 

Tools used 
100mm Stone Effects Spreading Tool 
Staalmeester Angled Fitch Brush 

Some pointers to take note of  after watching the video: 

With Artisan Metallic Alchemy when using the Illuminator + Metallic Concentrate, use The Staalmeester "one" series. These are super soft bristles allowing for beautiful flawless metallic finishes. 

Stone Effects: although in most cases, Artisan Lacquers are not neccesary, when it comes to creating table tops or benches, coffee table tops, anything thats going to get used really hard and need regular wiping and cleaning, it is recommended that you apply Artisan Lacquer over the top to in particular make the surfaces easily wipeable on a regular basis. 

Arcadian Silver is best used over a Premium Chalk Paint base like Clubhouse Grey. Premium Chalk Paint adheres to almost any surface + Metallic Alchemy bonds with Premium Chalk Paint really well = you can create Artisan Metallic  finishes on almost any surface. 

If applying Metallic Alchemy directly over a surface like we did over the metal. Even if you have gained full coverage on the first coat, you still want to do 2 good coats to allow there to be enough Artisan Metallics on there to protect and wear well. Once it's on there though it's a very hard durable and wipeable surface. 

The finish shown in the Video are using products that is suitable for both indoors and outdoors.
