We have been hooked on World Cup Soccer. The games have been exciting and intense. Since I was inside on beautiful days, I decided to paint while watching the games.
I decided the tv armoire needed an update. Out came the ASCP Louis Blue.
This is the original ‘90’s armoire. There was a time when we liked this style (not sure I should admit that), but it was long ago.
It goes with the knotty pine walls. I have debated painting these walls for 4 years! The armoire was a much easier job than the walls, so I got started.
One coat of Louis Blue was applied right over the factory finish of the knotty pine. Again, no sanding or priming!
It was still blah. Better but blah. So I applied the clear wax to protect the paint and then started to apply the dark wax randomly.
No sanding was used because I did not care for the original color on the armoire. Instead, all the distressing was achieved with wax.
Hardware makes all the difference!
And here she is all nice and blue.
I do love the Louis Blue with the dark wax. Goodbye ‘90’s, hello cottage style!
We are wrapping up here at the cottage and heading home. Back to reality and schedules and such. Lots of work to be done to restock my space.
Until next time-
