It’s not often that a piece gets not one but two before and after posts!
The Florence Tables have gone from very french and vintage…
To pretty sharp and – dare I say? – modern!
The tables had originally been painted in Annie Sloan chalk paint and sealed with the AS wax (detailed here). Before painting over the finish in Benjamin Moore latex paint, I lightly sanded the tables with 100 grit sandpaper. I sanded in a circular motion to take off just enough wax so the latex paint would really stick. After sanding, I wiped them down with a clean paper towel to create a smooth and clean surface. I then proceeded to paint them in Benjamin Moore Blue Suede Shoes! Using a sponge brush, they were sealed in General Finishes Flat Out Flat Topcoat.
My customer had originally told me she wanted them in navy and gave me this color to use. I think it is a lot more of a pop of blue than standard navy. This is definitely a fun color.
I repainted the hardware and used gold stencil paint by Royal Design Studios to give it a pop of glam.
Don’t step on my blue suede shoes! LOL have a great weekend!
