Some people meditate, others hit the gym, a few knit, us though, we paint!! I love the hunt of finding an old piece and transforming it with a new coat of paint (or two!) Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan is THE holy grail of paint! There's no sanding or hard labor prepping before you paint... and you know that we love that! We carry Annie Sloan's entire line of Chalk Paint®, waxes, brushes and books at The Owl Box!
KEEP IT FRESH!
This vintage buffet was a bit drab and dated, but with a fresh coat of Old White and clear wax, it gave new life!
Although I loved the original knobs, it needed a touch of something, we have lots of different knobs to choose from at The Owl Box. I chose these classic floral knobs with gold trim and love how they compliment the original ones.
MAKE IT POP!
Sometimes it's all about the details in a piece. I loves the subtle curves and lines this hutch had, I knew I had to accent it. This was painted in Paris Grey and finished with a clear wax. I also took a little pure white and rubbed it in all of the carvings to make them pop, you can see it from across the room!
A LITTLE WASH
This is the newest piece and I love how it turned out. The base color is French Linen with a Coco wash over. Distressing the carvings in the legs and the curvature around the table really makes the detail pop. And to add even more texture and demension, it's finished off with a dark wax. With all of those techniques together it gives an almost weathered wood look, and I'm loving it!
We hope you find a piece to transorm this year. Come pay us a visit to talk paint and have any questions you have answered! Tag us in your painted furniture, we love to see! @OwlBoxVintage
