Another Day…Another Piece of Furniture

Each day this week I will be painting a piece of furniture from around the Tavares Antique Mall with Annie Sloan Paint.

This was the piece I started yesterday. If you look closely you may notice that the top is darker than the bottom. This piece came out of house that had a fire. It was very dry and took two coats.

I finished with a little more than half a can.

I started around 1:30 and by 4:00 I was putting on the wax. I even had time to chat with customers during the process.

I love how the dark wax brings so much texture to the paint.

This shows how much difference the dark wax makes. It really gives it an Old World, rustic look. I like that look, but I don’t mind it with just the clear wax. That is what makes this paint and the waxes so much fun. There are just so many techniques you can use.

This is the finished result.

Tomorrow after 1pm I will be painting the vanity in Duck Egg blue over Primer Red.

Thanks to everyone that has stopped by to watch. It has been fun meeting everyone and sharing tips and tricks.
