I am in love with dark wax October 19 2011, 0 Comments
I was intimidated by the dark wax at first and my first project went back to the drawing board and I , have grown to love it.
It gives another dimension to the paint, that suits my tastes.
I first stared having furniture painted in the early 70’s , then it was milk paint and lacquer finish.
My dining room chairs are a traditional Queen Anne painted Chinese red, a little more orange than the Empeoro’s Silk , I had the seats done in black leather and the side chairs are Chinese Chippendale ribbon backs with Red Ostrich leather seats. I like the oriental look and wanted to achieve a similar look with the Annie Sloan paints.
Here are some images of my work in progress
Doors are missing they need a bit of work
This the finish
So far I am loving the look . Will do a final photo when the doors are on.
This paint and wax allows you be creative and adventurous if want to go in that direction.
Until next time
