I wanted it to go with the piece below it, but have more of a vibrant color.
First I painted it all over with Paris Gray Annie Sloan chalk paint. Then I went over some of it with Country Gray. I then waxed it and thought I was finished.
But after living with it for a couple of weeks it was just blending into the wall color so I grabbed another can of chalk paint that I have had for a long time. I used Old Violet which is really more of a blue.
Now it was looking much better and was not blending with the wall anymore.
I distressed it and added gold rub n buff here and there to make it look like it had some gilding at one time.
I found this blue and white transferware bowl last week and had intended on using it somewhere else, but it didn't work out and ended up here.
I was cleaning out some
junk stuff the other day and found this little framed water color that I have had for many years and decided to hang it here.
Always fun to find something stashed away that can be used again.
The shelf is filled with plates and pitchers collected over time.
I still have not heard from PATRICIA who WON the Annie Sloan book the other day.
Patricia, where are you??
I will choose a new winner soon if I don't hear from her.
