If you read my post yesterday, you know I’ve been moving a few pieces of furniture around the house to try and give my favorite spaces a fresh look. Just to recap, it started when the entry went from this
and the breakfast area went from this
it left this solid oak entry table as the last piece standing. I’ve had it for a few years now and surprisingly it has never been painted. Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for more furniture painted in Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg. We’re in the beginning of what promises to be a busy tourist season at The Pickers Market and this table will be a perfect addition to my booth.
I created a custom mix using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg and Pure White.
I just mix the colors in a plastic cup adding one color and then the other until I get the shade I envision. If the paint is too thick, I add a little bit of water to help thin out the consistency. This step really depends on how much paint you use and your personal preference. Then I take a spoon, stir the mixture really well and get to painting.
Once I finished with this piece, I sealed with clear furniture paste wax. Are these legs awesome or what?
Of course, I had to distress it just a little.
I picked up this drawing of the Mississippi Queen a few weeks ago. I can’t imagine how much work must have gone into this piece of art.
I picked up this lamp a few weeks ago too. It’s definitely chipping in all of the right places. I may keep this one but I’ll have to find just the right spot for it first.
I can’t wait to get this in my booth space!
See you guys back here tomorrow. I went shopping with my Mom recently and I can’t wait to show you all of the goodies we picked up.
