I'm loving it with my neutrals and am so happy I went with the lighter color.
I have a bit of detailing to do on the bottom hardware.
(Oh my gosh, I JUST now noticed I didn't do the hardware on the doors!)
Yep, went and confirmed, thought maybe it was the photo...ugh...
can't believe I missed those guys!
Anyway, here it is and I can't wait to give it a little Christmas pizazz and show
it to you next week along with my unconventional Christmas tree....
there's a peek for you off to the side. :)
Thank you Linda and Jennifer for suggesting the metal, Cathy for suggesting greige
which led me to French Linen, and my kind reader that advised against black,
and, to all of you that offered your opinions along the way and tips for working with ASCP!
My hutch was a Craigslist purchase, it included a table and six chairs - $250.
Paint and Wax - $70
Aluminum Sheet on Doors - $32
Plastic that didn't work on doors - $16
(I'm trying to think of a clever diy to salvage it)
None, that is the beauty of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, no sanding or priming.
I wish I would have watched this video by Cindy @ Simply Reinvented here
before waxing, she has great tips I'll be using next time!
I didn't purchase one of the waxing brushes ($35). I wasn't sure that I'd be doing enough
pieces to warrant it, but it would have made the waxing much easier.
I know I used a lot more wax than I should have, but didn't realize it until too
late in the game. I did have to add some water to the paint as it thickened a bit
from having the lid off for so long while I was painting.
Otherwise, easy to use and great coverage, I applied two coats of paint.
See you Monday, I'm off to finish decorating and get my act together for the
Favorite Things party,
that I've totally neglected because I was obsessed with finishing this!
Happy weekend, hope you get something BIG crossed off your list,
or have some BIG fun!
