Living and exploring the creative side of life.

After buying this dresser months ago and letting it sit in its ugly blue state for way too long, I decided to drag it out and throw some paint on it. I always have trouble deciding on which color I want to use because of all the possibilities. I settled on painting the base color with AS Graphite and the top coat AS Antibes which is a bright green. The first coat was applied heavily to cover all the blue and after it dried I dry-brushed the green on so the Graphite would show through.
Then, I used a stencil I purchased at Hobby Lobby to stencil the drawers.

It came out really nice so I put the original hardware back on it and waxed it and took it to my booth at Ole Towne Antiques in Columbia. I need to get to work on all the other pieces so I can fill the booth up!

I found a cute little six sided table while out thrift store shopping and thought I could paint  it and give it a new life. I think they were actually getting ready to throw it onthe trash!  I picked up some Annie Sloan chalk paint from a store in Charlotte, NC called Great Walls Supply, Inc. on my latest trip and decided to try it out on this piece first.

Here is the before…

And here is the after…
