Hey guys, I haven’t posted in a few days due to computer woes! Tell Us Tuesday will be back next week with Susan from Saw Nail and Paint (can’t wait!). In the meantime, I have been busy. I painted my living room in Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige and shall share pics soon. It is a fantastic neutral and I’m very happy with it.
It’s not often that a piece gets not one but two before and after posts!
The Florence Tables have gone from very french and vintage…
To pretty sharp and – dare I say? – modern!
The tables had originally been painted in Annie Sloan chalk paint and sealed with the AS wax (detailed here). Before painting over the finish in Benjamin Moore latex paint, I lightly sanded the tables with 100 grit sandpaper. I sanded in a circular motion to take off just enough wax so the latex paint would really stick. After sanding, I wiped them down with a clean paper towel to create a smooth and clean surface. I then proceeded to paint them in Benjamin Moore Blue Suede Shoes! Using a sponge brush, they were sealed in General Finishes Flat Out Flat Topcoat.
