Today I will be stepping out of my box and learning something new. Painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I am going to a free workshop at The Red Door Antiques & More I am soooo excited!!! I already started working on my old bedroom furniture which will be the new guest bedroom furniture. :)
I wanted to have a darker top, and tried using just the dark wax, but it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. Then I remembered I had left over Rustoleum Furniture Transformations from my daughters tables project here. That was the color I was looking for and since all I was doing is the tops I had plenty for this project.
So here I will share the before and then after the workshop today, I will come home with supplies and get started chalk painting and antiquing and will share when I am finished. Did I mention how excited I am!?!?
|I got this bedroom set at a consignment shop many many years ago. They looked|
a lot nicer back then. LOL!
|You can see the wear and tear on the front night stand. The back|
one looked pretty much the same before I tried just the
dark was alone.
|Just using the dark wax. Not the look I was going for, but|
if I was just cleaning it up I think it would work

|These are the pulls I got from Overstock.com|
Hint-buy when you get the email coupon for 10% off after you set up
an account. I only paid
$49.74 for 25 pulls. That was the cheapest I found.
