Chalk Paint Transformation

I wanted to share a little before and after we did in the shop this past week.  I found this great little feminine secretary at an auction and fell in love with the lines.  It was beautiful as is but I had a desire to give it a little extra personality.  Here she is BEFORE…


I wanted to use the Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan color Florence to really make her pop.  I envision her as a statement piece in someones home either as a functioning desk or in an entry way.  We painted her in Florence then waxed her with clear wax and then finally we rubbed some dark wax to really give her a little extra dimension.  I love using dark wax on top of Florence Chalk Paint its just gorgeous.  This little pretty is still for sale in the shop, $295.
