A Long Overdue Re-do

Sooo, it's been a month since I last posted. My job has been busy and my little boy has been growing so quickly. Life is funny like that.

I refinished my black entry-way table (itself a yard sale find for $20!) with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Old White. I waxed it with clear wax. I'm interested in the dark wax, but I want more chalk paint colors too much to spend the money on the wax instead of, say, Aubusson Blue!

No worries, though. I have good old glaze from RL, and I didn't want to dinge-ify this table anyway. Wanna take a look?


Um, I thought there was a rule that all before photos have to be messy... Sorry, guys. (All 7 of you, but 7 million tomorrow! Muahahaha!


And, and up-close of the beautiful distressed, waxed finish. I tell you, I'm in love with the wax. It just takes a small amount, dries quickly, but also really hardens over time. I walk by this table and ALWAYS have to run my fingers over the top. It sounds strange, but the finish is so smooth and hard it reminds me of marble or ceramic.

Go visit Annie Sloan here.
Then, follow her link to stockists in the US. I use Robyn Story Designs down in Florida. She has flat-rate shipping, great pricing on the paint and everyone rocks to work with.
