Annie Sloan convert! Another person to join the masses!

Wow! I so understand the hype. Those little cans hold their weight in gold.
My paint came in the mail and even though it was 90 degrees outside with 190% humidity, out came the paintbrushes.

PROJECT #1
a spare trunk I had sitting around from our first home. now a great spot to store my out of control collection of shelter mags at the foot of our bed.
 
the colour on both these projects is French Linen with clear and dark soft wax


just a little bit of distressing around the metal latches


PROJECT #2
a dresser in our front hall/entry area that stores our winter gear (blagh). this dresser was originally my grandfathers. i painted it black 4 years ago but, with 3 black pieces or furniture in that immediate area it felt like it was blending in too much and not showcasing the ever changing vignettes on top.

the colour ties in with the new wall tones and architectural pieces surrounding it.

the distressing on the edges of this piece allow the black to come through. i love how it turned out. this paint goes on so nice and is super easy to customize to your taste.
 
a great view of the black distressing
 

THE BEFORES:




I still have a planter to paint and then.... who knows!

Have a great day

Meg

  2. I love that chest! Did you use Annie Sloan Wax or something else?

  3. Don't you just love ASCP? I'm having fun with it too. I recently did a post and shared a server I painted. Stop by if you get a chance.
