Come sit down with a glass of wine, or cup of tea and see what I have been up to. I love thrifting, sewing, gardening, redecorating and refinishing old furniture and lamps. I do sell someof my items, so if some pretty thing grabs your fancy please ask me; I may be willing to part with it!!

More Fun With Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!
I was surfing through Pinterest last week and came across a table painted in ASCP Antibes Green then coated with dark wax.
This is a finish I have wanted to achieve for a long time!
This is the table I had that I wanted the finish for!
But!!! I was a chicken...a fraidy-cat....to try something new.....so I chose something small to see how it would look first...
I chose these two sewing machine drawers.
The one on the left has two coats of paint.
The one on the right has had two coats of paint and dried for 24 hrs, then sanded with fine grit sanding block, then waxed with clear wax, then dark wax and allowed to dry for 24 hrs. Then buffed it well with a piece of an old towel. And I loved it!!!
So I felt fearless and transformed the table....
Instead of sanding after painting, I used very fine steel wool to smooth out the surface and distress it a bit.
