– Sample pots of grey paint in 3 shades – Metallic craft paint (optional)
– Feather – Cloth and/or Toothbrush – Spray bottle with water
Step 1: Source your ‘Trolley’
If you find a suitable piece but it doesn’t have wheels you can easily add them so don’t be put off!
Step 2: Sand & Prepare
When I brought my secondhand trolley home I gave it a quick sanding over paying particular attention to the flat tray surfaces as this needed to be shiny like marble.
Step 3: Paint your Base Colour
After making sure it was clear of dust and as smooth as possible I painted three layers of Rustoleum chalk paint in ‘Chalk White’.
Step 4: Hand-painted Marble Effect
Once I was happy with the white finish all over I started to hand-paint on the marble effect.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
I used gold on some of the carved detail of the table legs, and to touch up the old steel on the wheels- you will likely need a few coats for this.
