Hope you had a great weekend and stayed warm. Ours was quite enjoyable. A little relaxation, a date night and some projects. I am pretty excited to share our latest transformation.
I scored a dresser while thrifting. It was missing a drawer but I had faith that Hubby could overcome that little issue.
It had such great detail that I could not pass this up!
Let me introduce you to Annie Sloan’s Provence. It is my new fave! I borrowed it from a friend because something about this piece screamed color.
Before I waxed with the dark, the color was too bright for our room and for our taste. Hubby convinced me to break out the dark wax. Thankfully, I did not argue. It was just what the piece needed to bring in that old world charm.
Hubby did a great job creating a faux drawer.
We left the top natural. Sanding down the finish and applying a dark stain, followed by a wax finish was all she needed.
She is making a statement in our living room. The color definitely pops in our sea of browns.
Hope you like it as much as we do.
**This color was very difficult to capture. Some pics are taken with natural light and others I waited until it was dark. It is a beautiful, soft aqua.
See ya tomorrow!
I will be sharing with some friends this week.
