Hello everyone and happy TGIF! Hope you are having a good one.
Here is a small project I just finished and carried to the shop.
This picture shows the true color ASCP “Coco”. Some of the other pictures were taken in my booth at King’s Antiques in Shreveport and the fluorescent lights made it look more green than gray.
I forgot to take a before picture but I did have this one from a group I had taken of my furniture that is stored waiting to be refurbished.
You can just see it under the larger table it at least gives you an idea of the original color.
I first of course cleaned it up then applied two coats of the “Coco” paint. I have to say that I love Annie Sloan Chalk Paint but I have not found that it will cover a dark stain or paint in one coat. I applied two coats on this piece.
I then traced an image I found at The Graphics Fairy using carbon paper and painted it with “Old White” ASCP. I also painted the trim and lattice work “Old White”.
After that dried I applied a coat of clear wax (also Annie Sloan) and distressed it lightly. Finally I applied another coat of clear wax and in a few places some dark wax to age it some more.
And there you have it. Have a great weekend and happy painting.
