Inspired Once Again!
Last week I came upon this wonderfully grown up and very long sideboard. A Queen Anne style piece with good bones and feminine legs. I had big plans for this beauty!
But that all changed when I spent some time reading blogs, and more blogs and then way more blogs....damn those blogs are addictive! Anyway, I discovered a new type of paint called Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and boy were there lots of bloggers using it, talking about it, show their pieces painted with it, etc.
Sadly I found out that you can't purchase it anywhere in CT so I called a retailer in NJ and had the greatest chat with Patty, the owner. Boy, was she a pro! I quickly placed my order for 2 colors and the special wax and then waited anxiously for the UPS guy to arrive the next day...super fast!
By now I had already primed her because I thought she might bleed thru and was ready and waiting.
She even has a purple-ish (very royal) felt liner in her middle drawers for silver....love that!
My paint arrived Friday and I went right to work!
Two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and one coat of wax. Now I'm just waiting for it to "cure" so I can do the final buff out. Can't wait to show you the finished piece.
I chose Paris Grey for the color and its just beautiful!
