Brushes At The Ready!

I've had a "painty" day. Trying out the fantastic Annie Sloan chalk paints. This is a set of shelves which you may recognise! I had been "making" & selling these at Aberdeen Antique Centre but this set were getting the full Annie Sloan treatment!

A first coat of Antibes Green, a beautiful, rich colour. Then once dry I gave the shelves a wax with Annie Sloan clear wax.  It's a lovely, soft wax that goes on like a dream! 
I then painted the shelves all over with Old White. A coat of clear wax then I sanded lightly to reveal the coloured paint. I then applied some dark wax to give the shelves an aged and worn look.  I am pleased with the effect and the shelves look great in the shop among the French rustic pieces!



  1. WOW, these are so gorgeous, love how you achieved the look.x

  2. Love these little tables...they are SO sweet....x


I appreciate any comments left!
