Creating a Faux Granite Finish for an old Victrola



After updating my old green Formica countertops, I wanted to try the finish on a piece of furniture.

I had always loved this old Victrola of my Daddy’s, and we actually used it as a coffee station at Java Joe’s, my coffee shop in DeRidder, LA. I wasn’t too concerned about protecting the value of the piece by refinishing the wood. I really wanted to enjoy loving the look of it in my space.

I painted the piece in Dixie Belle Pine Cone, and used dark wax, and decided this was the perfect piece to use the granite technique on. (I used the black base coat from Giani Granite, because I had some leftover, but would gave chosen Dixie Belle Caviar if I didn’t. All others were Dixie Belle)

I hope you enjoy the video tutorial, and as always, if I can help, let me know!
