I forgot to take a before of this little bedside table. Like all the furniture I look for it was in good condition–just a bit outdated. It has nice lines and details so once painted I knew it would look great.
I actually didn’t paint this. My assistant Em painted it. I told her to use Provence…I hadn’t used it in a while and I don’t think she had ever!
I think I had forgotten how great this colour is.
Provence with clear wax and then some dark wax to add patina and highlight some of the details. A light distressing in some areas really brings it to life!
I am off to New Orleans on Monday–there is an Annie Sloan paint conference, so of course I am sure to learn loads! I love chatting with other people that carry the paint- we bounce ideas off of each other and discuss things we have tried and learned. Honestly, this whole painting furniture thing is one of the best decisions I have ever made! When you find work you enjoy….it doesn’t feel like work!
