My next BIG THING!!

Um, NO! I'm not pregnant.

I just made myself a new Annie Sloan Paint Display. And it's sorta big. Just kinda sort big.  Remember this is the girl who chose for her first marathon to run across the Grand Canyon. Yep. I don't do ANYTHING half way. ;P


 Tester Pots, Books, Brushes & Color Charts!
 But don't change that channel yet . . .

There's more!
Quarts and Storage. And more storage. Hum, LOVE storage.
Yep, the doors are open since I didn't get the skeleton keys to close them!

 Off to the locksmith I go tomorrow. ;)

Is that all? you say,
Oh, NO!

There's more!!

Yep, 80 square feet of glorious
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!

Painted Trim pieces show off the colors with
 clear wax and dark.

The Finish Details
This little Big baby was painted in Old Ochre on the door fronts & Trim, and a mix of Graphite & Old Violet on the display shelves. I added a French Linen Wash in the door front & Trim details. Everything was lightly distressed. I poly coated it all before antiquing it with Dark Wax.  

Here's the before Pic! Well sort of, I had already taken off the glass doors on the center piece, cabinet doors on the right hand side and flip down door on the left and side. I still have them so if I ever sell this I can put them back on. ;)
 Ever so practical me.
Thanks for stopping by!
