A BIG Client Project

Before we left for vacation I completed a BIG project.  An interior decorator wanted a breakfront painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Old White.  After emailing photos and details, I picked up the piece and got started.

This nice classic piece was the client’s mothers hutch and had sentimental value.  Unfortunately, it was too dark for the space.

I got started in sections.  This piece required 2 coats and distressing.

I painted the wire and the hardware.

All the distressing was achieved with various grits of sand paper.  The client did not want the dark wax.

This was the largest piece I have worked on.  It also was a significant transformation.  I am so thrilled that the client can use this piece that her mom cherished, but make it her style.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint goes a long way.  I used an entire quart on this piece! 

I hope you love the transformation as much as the client does!
