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.
