My everlasting struggle with the "smalls" might finally be coming to an end. A few months ago, I was ready to first experiment with the Annie Sloan Dark Wax. I choose to use a candle holder as my first experiment. It turned out great but I am glad I used a small item to try it for the first time. I took it to the shop and it sold right away! Yay!
So, I didn't even think about continuing this until I cam across these large pillar candle holders at Goodwill. I couldn't wait to paint them. I chose to do an Old White but couldn't decide on the end finish. I finally chose to do the Dark Wax.
This is the difference between clear wax and a dark wax finish. I loved the dark wax finish so I continued. Here are some of my recently finished projects.
With exception of the Music Tree and the pin, everything else is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I am completely obsessed with the bowl. It is Versailles and Old White.. I may not take that piece to the store. ;) I am now searching Northern Illinois for more small items to paint. I wonder what I will find next.
And yes...the tree is super cool!
