Today was kind of awful and I'm glad the day is over. But let me show you what I did yesterday.
Some days ago I received my first Annie Sloan Chalk Paint but didn't find time to try it out. Yesterday I did!
I had this neat little jewelry dresser from Mösi's and prepared it to be painted.
I used old white on the body and old ochre on the drawers. I was SO thrilled about the paint!! It's so different than anything I ever used and it's awesome to paint with it!
The "thing" happened when I applied my "wax-you-get-at-any-DIY-store"... suddenly a orangy-yellow appeared on the paint. Somehow this wax was not as translucent as it said.
I ended up telling myself that a little patina wasn't too bad but somehow I still got that shiny old white in my head it had before the waxing.
My husband likes it a lot this way, so I guess it will be ok to leave it as it turned out.
For the inside of the drawers I used a japanese linen (50% cotton, 50% linen).
I also tried out the duck egg blue and was in awe while looking at the painted piece! But I'll have to show you this later.
I'll have a very busy weekend including Friday, so it may get a little quiet on here...
Have a great and creative weekend,
