I have been really busy working on Yvonne’s tables. They are both pretty old and were already cracking in places. Perfect candidates for chalk paint! I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and applied a light coat of General Finishes Antique White as the top coat. I like to combo these two – the chalk paint makes it easy to distress and the milk paint gives it a strong and harder finish. Both tables were sanded and distressed to show off their detail and then waxed in Annie Sloan clear wax. Yvonne has gorgeous gold, silk drapes in her living room and I also added a few highlights in Cere a Dorer gold gilding wax for a few bits of gold elegance.
To Shabby and Very Chic!
Tomorrow I am going to share Jane’s beautiful and newly renovated dining room where the Rembrandt Red buffet is placed in the perfect spot!
