|BEFORE. Nice vintage desk with original town and country hardware. |
Look at those carvings at the bottom... LUV it!
Well here is that chippy luuvvvvvvv..desk I was tellin' ya about the other day. She is all done up in "Provence" from ASCP. Dark waxed it like a mutha' and TA DAAAAAA... I call her "Billie" Cuz' she's got some dirty blues honey! Hope you likey..
OH! I tried a new tool out I read about...cabinet scrapers...I guess they are used in finishing cabinetry, ya' know..for like..SCRAPING!? ;) BUT they also help with giving a chippy look!I got mine from ebay for $16.00 for 3 different styles of blade. I found the curvy one is the one I liked best. I even took video.. check it out..
*DISCLAIMER* I am not a video editor and I have no idea how to "Cut and/or Splice" so, sorry..your just gonna have to sit through the whole boring thing! hahha Just wanted to share how I achieved the chippy look (ALSO, some people do this same process with a razor blade..Yikes!)
|I used Annie Sloan "Provence"|
|She had some very minor issues..nothing a little wood filler can't fix!|
|When it gets too chilly to paint outside,paint in...YOUR KITCHEN!|
