Cement-look furniture is all the rage – try this fun project to update an old coffee table.

Materials you will need:

  • sugar soap
  • Dulux Wood Primer
  • sponge roller
  • large paintbrush
  • Fired Earth Severe Weather in the colour Lightning (available from Builders)
  • Annie Sloan Clear Soft Wax
  • castor wheels

Step 1

If you are using an old table, clean it thoroughly with sugar soap and water.

Step 2

Prime the surface of the wood and let it cure according to the manufacturer’s instructions (we used Dulux Wood Primer).

Step 3

Apply the first coat of Fired Earth’s Severe Weather paint with a sponge roller – it offers a textured finish for interior and exterior use. Allow it to dry for about four hours, then apply the second coat but use diagonal strokes in a crisscross pattern to create an uneven effect.

Step 4

Leave the paint to cure overnight, then apply a coat of Annie Sloan Clear Soft Wax with a large brush. Before the wax dries completely, apply the final coat of paint with the same brush to create the textured surface.
