I am so excited about my rescue from Salvation Army!! I got this steal for only $40! It was actually a real pretty piece as is, but the top needed a little help and the hardware had to go! My intention all along was to paint it, but I had to figure out where in the house this would go because that would determine the color. I didn't want to do black because I've already done that a few times and I wanted to try something different. I wanted to try Annie Sloan's chalk paint since I've heard so many great things about it. NO SANDING, NO PRIMING!! That had me sold on trying it!
After the dark wax had dried, ( a few hours) go back and buff all the surfaces with clean, dry cloth again, to make it a little shiny! It will be beautiful.
Now I have to find just the right hardware!!!
Happy Painting :-)
