I painted with Old White and then used Annie Sloan’s dark wax to cover. I really like the color it turned to. I used too much dark wax to start but learned that you can brush on additional clear wax over it and then wipe away. The disappointment was that I wanted the dark wax to stick in the turns on those legs but it kept wiping out. I think I just need more practice with it. And I’m ok with that :)
In case you missed the before shots here are a couple….
The table was in parts when I received it. I had to basically rebuild it. It looks good but I wouldn’t sit anything too heavy on it. Glen is pretty light and he loves sitting on this table!!
This was after three coats of chalk paint. I had some issues with coverage but after I primed it with Kilz things went smoothly.
Not sure if I want to keep this one or sale. Maybe I will decide once we sell a house and know where we will be living. Unless I get an offer to purchase :)
What do you think? Anybody else a little scared of the dark wax??
