After hearing so many good things about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I decided that I need to give it a try..I have to admit, I wasnt to happy about the price tag..At $40 per quart, this is definetlly the most expensive paint that I have ever bought…
I kept telling myself that is going to worth it, since I have been reading a lot about it, and supposedly it goes a long way..
After the first coat, I wasn’t sold on it..so I went for the second coat..then, I was in love..now, I am a big fan, and I just finished painting the forth piece with it..
Distressing was easy but..at 115F in the garage, distressing was still pretty much equal with a good workout..
I finished the dresser with two coats of Fiddes wax..I usually apply one coat, wait until is dry, and buff it..then, I apply the second coat a day later..I like to wait after the first coat, so that the wax gets to penetrate the wood, that way will be more durable on the long run..
I hesitated between painting the top, or just re-staining it, and I am so glad I choose to just re-stain it..
I use Minwax in Honey oak, and it came out perfect..the top was finished with two coats of Danish Oil, that took a little bit longer to dry than I expected..since it’s monsoon season, its humid, and I had to wait about a week until was completely dry..
This is Olie, and it will be at Jam starting August 1st.. I am so excited!
