Revealing Red

Happy Friday!
This is our last weekend of summer.  I’m sad that the lazy days are gone – no schedule, limited activities and sleeping in (for some of us).  But I would be lying if I wasn’t looking forward to a few hours without children.
Even with the girls home, I was able to complete a few projects.  I needed to get furniture delivered yesterday, so I have been painting up a storm.  That was in between nursing a strep throat victim and watching every episode of Victorious.
First up is a buffet/console.

I found this dated beauty in good shape.  Everything worked and slid properly.  No fixing – love that!
CA picked a color and I was off and painting.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor’s Red was the color of choice.  Followed by dark wax.
The hardware needed an update as well.  I chose to spray the existing drawer hardware in ORB.  Then I replaced the door hardware.

It makes a big difference.

I must say, the red is now one of my favorite colors offered by Annie Sloan.  It is rich and deep and makes a statement.
She will be available for purchase September 1 at a new location!  Details coming on Monday!
In the meantime, the SALE continues in B-20 at Heritage Square Antique Mall.  I am closing this space on August 31.  So shop now for the best selection.
Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous! I just finished a dresser for a customer in a custom ASCP mix to get a Coral color and I love it too... Hmm.. maybe I need to find a way to incorporate one of these colors into my home! Great job!

Oh, that red is amazing! I need to get serious about a couple of pieces I have sitting around calling out for paint.
