I realize I've been MIA lately but I took the holiday vacation very literal this year:) I had a wonderful and relaxing time with family and friends. I can't remember the last time I didn't try to squeeze in some painting and e mails when I had a few seconds. I was a little bummed after the craft fair and vowed to not pick up a paint brush again for at least a week! It was just what I needed to get myself excited about working again.
Here is a lovely armoire and matching nightstands. I used a mixture of Aubusson Blue and Duck Egg Chalk Paint. I am in love with this color. I have been seeing it all over. I would watch this horrible television series religiously just so I could see a characters fabulous bedroom with this color. I would stop at the paint store and search for the perfect swatch. Never there. I kept telling my husband, I need to find out a way to make that color, I must have it in my life. After much searching, good old Pinterest helped me out.
I used antique gold Rub N Buff for the trim and hardware. This was my first experience with Rub N Buff and it was amazing. I am using it for all my hardware from now on, it was that good!
I did a light coat of dark wax using shoe polish wax mixed in Johnson and Johnson clear paste wax. The inside has been painted a rich Coco Chalk Paint.
Here is the before, your typical replica furniture that is now yellowing over time. It is so glamorous and classy now. This will be a hard one for me to let go.
This set is available in my Etsy shop!
