I still intend to use the piece in one of our guest rooms though so now that Annie Sloan Chalk Paint has hit the US in full force I figured this piece of furniture would be a great piece to try out the paint on.
So the first steps were….. tada…just begin painting…no sanding, no prepping just paint away!
|So the cabinet was kind of dirty having been in storage a long time, actually a little disgusting.|
|I forgot to take a photo before I removed the drawers but you get the drift ;-)|
|First coat of Annie Sloan paint color "Old Ochre"|
|Outside all painted, ready to have wax applied.|
|You can see why this piece would be so heavy! An old well built piece of furniture.|
Hubby wanted me to try to get the piece painted before we have movers bring our furniture from VA to new home in PA.
|Inside of cabinet back together, outside all waxed.|
|The piece turned out great, too bad my photograph didn't. doesn't do it justice.|
This is great paint to use. Now the movers can be the ones to have to carry it to our second floor.
