This dresser is so cute. I am sure whoever painted it
needed a blue and baby poop yellow
dresser to compliment the room!
This yellow had a lot of brown and green undertones so it
was quite hideous.
The pictures don't do it justice.....It was bad.
So I got out my Annie Sloan Old white and literally half an hour later.........
This is what I ended up with! I love the soft look now
and I very lightly brushed some of the paint
onto the blue. Then I waxed it with the clear wax.......
10 minutes later I had this......
I was able to vignette the top right away! Oh and I painted
this in place while the shop was open!
With any other paint there would have been drips, it would
have taken lots of time to dry, thus someone
may have left the shop with paint on them, and I would
have had to wait quite a while to add anything
to the top as it would have stuck to the paint.
I also painted this mirror above the dresser.....
I really like the way it came out. I am still getting the feel
of the wax and how much to use
but you can not make a mistake! If you use too much you
just buff it out, Too little just add more.
Ok I am gushing I know but try this for yourself you will love it!
Below are some pictures I snapped yesterday of the shop....
Next week is the big shop update. We will be getting the bed
and finally the fabulous Belgian linen sheets...
So everything must be rearranged to fit a bed into the shop!
I don't know how I will pull it off but it must fit.
I am off to Christy and Rita's show at the Oaks in Rainbow.
