Before and After

I got a request recently for more before and afters . . . so here you go! I promise to try harder to remember to take the before shots . . . just so hard when you're in the zen to remember those little things!

 This was an old English sideboard we had intended to leave as is--but enough customers commented on how much they liked it if it wasn't so heavy looking!
Well, finally I caved. Yeah, so it didn't really take much convincing on this piece! I totally agree it felt way to heavy.  


Painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (TM) Old Ochre and Clear Soft Wax. Light distressing and new knobs added--I would have left the old ones, but one was busted off and there was just no way to repair it.
Hints of Chateau Grey peak out under the distressing. The interior is painted in Chateau Grey as well.

 See that little peak of Chateau Grey?? Love that!
This one is for the shop--Check the finished pieces button for pricing and availability.

Thanks for stopping by!
