I enjoyed the holidays and the time off but it feels good to get back in a routine! And I've been dying to blog about my latest project. I made 2 great scores at Goodwill right around Christmas. I've been working on transforming one of them on my time off. Check out the brutal before:
Sorry took this photo with my iphone so it's not the best. My initial plan with this one was to remove those pulls, put one coat of Annie Sloan's Old White followed by a coat of 'Interesting Aqua'-Sherwin Williams. Then I was going to heavily distress making some of the white show through with some of the wood.
BUT...when I started painting the aqua over the white I loved the contrast of the 2 colors together and i liked the detail of this piece being a different color so it stands out more. So here is the direction it took....
I finished it off with 2 knobs from Hobby Lobby and a coat of Annie's Sloan's clear wax. I love the direction the piece took and the final result. The best part I only have $14 in the whole piece. The table was $6 and the knobs were on sale for $3 each. I already had all the paint and the wax.
