Yesterday I shared the first stage of Mary Claire’s bedroom re-do. The next step was to paint the furniture.
I love, love, love the colors! Checking out the Annie Sloan website, she tells me the most amazing things….”No scraping, no stripping, no sanding and no priming.” Wha-what?!? Where oh where can I find this wonderful product?
My sweet friend Amanda tells me I can find it just up the road from me. Awesome! Terri’s Treasures had exactly what I needed.
Lawdy, let me tell you…I was worn out. The bursa in my shoulder was swollen and throbbing after several hours of wax on-wax off.In addition to a layer of clear wax and a layer of dark wax, several layers of clear wax made the pieces protected and silky soft. Needless to say, buffing in the wax took several days.
The last thing to do on this part of the project was figuring out the hardware. I removed the paint on the hardware here. But I had a missing handle. Do I find an exact match on a 1960′s vintage? Good luck with that. Find handles that will match the holes? Tried, but no luck. Or fill the holes and drill a new one? BINGO!
Tomorrow I’ll show you some fun details I made.
Thanks for dropping by!
