Hello everyone hope your having a great day. I just wanted to check in and share a quick before and after.
I picked up some great pieces recently at a auction and this is the last large piece of the group.
I loved the details and those curves! Oooh, la, la!
Here is the before.
It was painted a yucky, brown color from the 1930's and the inside back and shelves were different colors.
Without sanding I painted it with my mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Chantilly Gray, Tearose for the back, and just white latex for the shelves.
Once that was dry I applied a coat of clear wax and let dry. I then made a wash of ASCP Pure White & water. Using 1 part paint to 5 parts water.
I applied this to all the gray in sections wiping away with a dry cloth and leaving more white on the detailed areas.
I then distressed it and added another coat of wax inside and out.
So there you have it. I'll leave you with more pictures that I hope inspire you to give this technique a try.
Thanks for stopping by,
