chalk it up
I just finished painting my first piece of furniture with ASCP. It was fun and easy to complete (once I finally found a table to work with). I followed the directions that I found in Quick and Easy Paint Transformations by Annie Sloan. After painting the piece (Country Grey), I used clear wax and then dark wax. I had intended to do a lot of sanding, but ended up liking it without sanding. The good news is...if I change my mind, I can always take the table back out to the garage and work on it some more. For tonight I am very pleased. So pleased that I had to take these pictures even though it would have been better to work with daylight. And can you believe that I had the drawer pull sitting around the house? It was left over from when I was trying to decide which hardware to put on our kitchen cabinets. I had to buy one of everything I liked, open the packages and try them. Who knew that any of the runner-ups would find another purpose!
