Getting Fancy(er) with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint February 24, 2012
Hello there darlings!,
You’d think I was on the payroll at Annie Sloan, considering all the posts I’ve made on the product! Sadly, that’s not the case! It is so darn much fun though, to take something that was in really sad shape and turn it into something I’d enjoy in our own home!
This has been a busy painting week and tomorrow we’ll be taking the goods over to Veranda in the Clampett-Mobile. (The Clampett-Mobile is this ratty old open trailer that Mr. Wonderful has had for years. When I first saw it, it reminded me of the Clampett’s, when they were moving into their mansion, on The Beverly Hillbilly’s, and the name stuck.)
Today, I put the finishing touches on a Duncan Phyfe style desk or vanity and matching chair. (It’s much more fun than the crazy fabric flower I made yesterday!) Mr. W. reinforced the chair seat for me and I had a blast using my new Black and Decker rechargeable screw driver, to put the hardware back on with! Woo-hoo!
I used the Old White, Graphite and Dark Wax on this project. Watch out! I know just enough to be dangerous! Have you tried this stuff yet? How long do you leave the wax on before you buff the piece out? I went to www.anniesloan.com today and am amazed at how little information they share on using the product successfully. The can itself has very little info. How are you supposed to figure this out? Osmosis? Will Annie come to me in my dreams tonight? Stay tuned!
Where ever you’re headed this weekend, be safe and have fun! Thanks so much for stopping by!
