Beyond Paint® is an all-in-one decorative refinisher that brings a bold new look to almost any surface — wood, laminate, metal, plastic, you name it. It's a great way to revive an old side table (not to mention other furniture, cabinets, countertops and accessories) and transform it into a unique accent piece for any room. Ace can help make this project easy with the paint, supplies and expert advice you need.

Matte Bone


  • Beyond Paint® All-In-One
  • Beyond Paint® Multi-Purpose Sealer
  • Beyond Paint® Flecks
  • 4" roller frame and cover
  • Paint tray
  • 1.5" angled paintbrush
  • Painter's tape
  • 220 grit sandpaper
  • Odorless mineral spirits
  • Latex gloves
  • Damp cloth

Start by giving the tabletop a good cleaning with the mineral spirits and cloth, then mask any areas you're not refinishing with the painter's tape.


Wear latex gloves to protect your hands while using mineral spirits

For the first step of your new finish, roll on two coats of Beyond Paint® All-In-One Matte Bone BP39, giving the first coat 2-4 hours to fully dry before applying the second. Use the paintbrush to cover the table edges and sides. Then, while the second coat is still wet, shake the Beyond Paint® Flecks evenly across the tabletop to create an eye-catching accent for your base color.

Give the tabletop 3-5 days to set, then lightly sand the surface and wipe it clean with a damp rag. Finally, roll on the Beyond Paint® Multi-Purpose Sealer. Remove the tape while the sealer is still wet, then let your creation cure for 30 days before giving it a final wash with soapy water.

The end result is a one-of a-kind accent piece that gives any room a look that's uniquely your own. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to carry out this revolutionary refinishing yourself, with a little help from your neighbors at Ace!
