I hope you all have a wonderful time tonight ringing in 2015! A Happy New Year to you all and all the best for the year to come! Thank you so much for making 2014 a great year for The Painted Drawer. I have great expectations for 2015 and am excited to get it going! First let’s say goodbye to 2014 with my favorite piece and favorite post!
Number 1: The Florence Dresser
There are many reasons why I made this my top choice. It was a very difficult project and took me in many directions before it all came together. I used Annie Sloan Florence and General Finishes glaze in Van Dyke Brown to create the look. I originally applied the glaze directly onto the chalk paint – HUGE mistake! I learned that applying glaze directly onto chalk paint creates a very streaky look (Glaze vs. Wax). I ended up painting over it and then used clear and dark waxes prior to applying the glaze. After all of the work, I was thrilled with the result!
Now to the top post of 2014! I wrote this back in December of 2013 and it remains my top post in 2014 – Whitewashed BrickHappy New Year!
