This is my SECOND Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint project. You can view the first HERE.
The worst part about refinishing items is forgetting to take a BEFORE picture 😦 Today I painted my 1995 Bombay Company vanity and stool set. It has a very high gloss dark stain on it. Like the mirror, I plucked this out of the garage and only wiped it down with a damp cloth. No sanding or prep worked needed! A quick search of the net shows my vanity stand looked like this before I started
My color plan for this item is Annie Sloane’s Bright White as it is going into Lulu’s new bedroom. Just plain old white. I am still amazed at how easy it is to paint with this paint. I do prefer to do two coats – it just feels better to me.
Yes, I do all my furniture painting right on my family room floor – terrible habit! This is my in progress photo:
Items are drying and ready for the first coat of clear wax. After some strategic intentional sanding and clear wax – the item is ready! Here is the finished product in its final location!
The stool I covered with the most gorgeous silver rosette fabric – it adds such great texture and femininity!
I hope that Lulu grows to love this table and mirror set. Maybe someday she will sit at it and put on her wedding veil like I did in 1997!
AND I am sharing a quick SNEAK PEAK of Lulu’s Room!!! How about that wall color!?!?! Final design to come soon!
