Still playing with the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint….
or maybe i should say still having fun with….
Since i was not busy today and had some Gilding Wax I decided to play a little
so i used it on this small table as an accent color
and it turned out just lovely….
First i made a plan by looking the table over and deciding which architectural design details I wanted to call attention to.
Then I just worked in the gilding wax with a little stiff brush.
It was actually a very simple way to enhance the design of this table.
the table was already painted an antique white and distressed so all it needed was the gilding wax
to make it complete!
Then of course, once you start painting and you have the paint open it just naturally follows that you look around for something else to paint
So with wax open and a little sample of the Louis Gold Annie Sloan Chalk Paint i
decided to paint two little frames that had nice architectural details but were kind of boring in that they were both just a flat grey.
So i just brushed some gilding wax on it using a dry brush technique. The gold just accentuated all the detail!
I decided to paint the inside area of this frame with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – Louis Blue.
Then i dry brushed the edges with the Kings Gold Gilding Wax.
This one is my favorite – it looks so soft and elegant!
A little paint, attention to detail and elbow grease (very little in this case) and these frames have a whole new look!
