Oh, those colors...which one to choose. So imagine my surprise when I went to one of the local antique stores, The Pink House, and learned they were going to a class and were going to carry the paint. I was very patient and waited, and waited for them to have a class...yea it was this Monday.
One of my to do projects on my list to get done was going to get completed.
The top Louis Blue and lightly sanded so the raised flowers would show the white. We distressed it a bit.
I waxed it with the clear wax and am buffing it daily.
The more I look at it I want to distress with dark wax...I'm even thinking of putting some of the gold back on in certain areas on the legs.
This is how it looks in the sunroom.
Courage continues as I move on to the secretary...I can do this, I know I can.
