So hmmm for some reason today felt like a Sunday to me today ;-) lol but whether it was a Saturday or Sunday it was a nice quiet semi productive Art day. I worked in the dungeon (our basement) all day painting final touches on an old dresser I am trying out Annie Sloan Paints on… I have high hopes to use this product on quite a few old furniture pieces of ours in hopes of updating the items for use in our "Someday down the road future Home" lol…. So for now I am just having fun…this piece is a no stress piece…the "oh well it's can't hurt to try piece"…it's my learning curve piece.
Already I have discovered a lot about using the product. #1: I began by using the paint a little too thick, straight from the can. There is so much pigment in this paint that I realized quickly water can be your best friend. #2: a good brush can make a difference. For this first piece I bought a can of Arles and have accented the trim in Old White. Next up is the step of waxing and deciding how much to possibly distress the dresser? So much fun..

|Half the panes have paper designs in place, half the paper is removed.|

Once I get all the glass cut and fit then glued in place I intend to put grout around the glass pieces.
Hope tomorrow ends up being an art day too!
