It was fine for a time, but it just wasn't quite the look I wanted anymore.
Many of y'all had mentioned maybe painting it red. To tell you the truth I had been leaning towards that all along. I just love painted red furniture. So I ordered some Annie Sloan chalk paint from my sponsor.
I chose Emperor's Silk. I placed my vintage suitcases that I recently found on top. I am wondering if maybe I should paint the bottom one white and age it or just leave it?
I decided to just let the old color stay in the detailed edges.
It only took one coat of the red which has never happened with regular latex paint in red.
Of course if I wanted a perfect finish it would have taken two coats, but I love some of the old finish pulling through this coat.
I didn't do any distressing and only applied clear wax.
Other changes are taking place in here, too. You may notice one of them. I have another big paint project in here and then it will be finished.......again. wink
