Don't forget about my artist call in the post below.
Bye bye golden oak.
Hello Annie Sloan's robin egg blue chalk paint.
Yes, I changed the knobs, and painted the mirror.
This paint arrived in the mail, because where I live, no one knows about Annie Sloan chalk paint, no one sells Annie Sloan chalk paint, and (seriously) golden oak is still king.
The paint I used was robin's egg blue. I love it. The paint went on easy peasy. I followed with the clear wax, which took a bit of woman power, but soooo worth it! I debated; clear wax, dark wax, clear wax, dark wax, and after much thought, (and little reasoning), I ordered the clear Annie Sloan wax to use on my table. Honestly, I wasn't too smitten with the look of the actual paint, but as I began to buff the wax over the paint, angels began to sing.
I was about to distress and sand this baby, but Mr. Heaven walked in and said he liked the table just the way it was. stable. The wax itself provided just a dabble of variation, and I admit, I liked it that way too. I am very curious to try the dark wax, so maybe next project.
What do you think?
Have a beautiful weekend, Ele
