Make a Statement

Happy Monday!

Hope you had a great weekend!  I’m going to gloss over ours – lets just say it didn’t go as planned!

A positive that came out of my disrupted weekend was I could get some stuff accomplished.  I’m not caught up by any means, but I am closer.

A piece I did complete is a statement piece.  The color came out perfectly.

I had this dresser in storage.  It was in good shape, it was just dated.

We stripped the top and painted the rest in Emperors Silk (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint).

When the paint is applied, it can be a bit frightening.  It is RED.

After applying the clear wax, I started applying Annie Sloan Dark Wax.  The dark wax certainly tones it down and gives it a rich finish.

I removed the brass hardware and gave it an oil rubbed bronze finish.  The stained top completes the makeover.
