Florence Y’All

To all the folks who travel to or through Kentucky – this is not about the water tower.  To everyone else, Florence is the newest Annie Sloan Chalk Paint color.

And I am hooked!

This color, which is closest to a teal, is HOT!  Here is one of the many projects that will get a makeover with Florence.

This desk was in pretty bad shape when I got her.  She had such great potential I felt I had to give her new life.

I painted her with this lovely new color and lightly highlighted the details.

The top was in pretty bad shape.  After sanding it down, I decided to embrace her story and leave some of the markings.  I stained it, waxed it and buffed it to a subtle sheen.

Excuse the bad shot, but I wanted to show you that this baby is in the window at Simply Vague!  You can also see that vintage typewriter I found.  They are a great pair.

Hope you like the color as much as I do!  More to come in Florence!
