I had some time on my hands this afternoon, courtesy of a very rainy day! I decided to paint the Craigslist buffet that has been sitting in the dining room since Spring. This time I chose Annie Sloan Old White followed by Dark Wax...

Look Ma! No tassels!
Reminder of what it looked like before...
It looks so small in these photos but it is six feet long. Not sure if I like it yet...The dining room will be painted in a few days. Maybe I will like it then? Maybe the ginormous tassels make it look small? It does look better than it did before, though. It was covered in crayon marks and mystery splotches! It only took four hours to paint two coats, rub and buff the Clear Wax, then apply the Dark Wax. You have to be quick when removing the Dark Wax! I haven't quite mastered that yet!
Happy Weekend Friends!
