In case you are wondering – this is how much we love our favorite RED!
Hubby found this terrific desk and we thought his earlier find of oops paint (gotta love those $2 cans!) was the perfect color to update the piece.
I have to tell you I was worried about this paint-never used enamel before but it goes on beautifully and covers VERY well! We’ll be using it again, I’m sure!
Miss Sophia has been experimenting again and came up with this lovely color which she calls Denim. And it does look denim-y!
Love the different drawer styles-and the color rocks!!!
The legs (and they are fabulous legs!) are painted in CeCe’s Destin Gulf Green and then dark waxed to accent the details. Miss Sophia re-stained the top and did a beautiful job!
Won’t last long I am sure!
Three weeks ago, hubby and I took a quick trip to Southern Oregon and we found this in Roseburg! Loved that it was solid wood and that the trim details were pretty much intact. All the knobs – lovely!!!
After two coats of Annie Sloan’s Florence and some dark wax, voila!
Florence still makes my heart sing!
I have purchased three of MMS’s milk paints and twice I have been disappointed – only because it didn’t chip on its own. I adore the colors and how it goes on my pieces and how beautifully it distresses with sandpaper and how gorgeous the pieces are with a little wax – but they didn’t chip…..
Finally – I didn’t over sand and the paint chipped and crackled – hurray!!! (Outside in the bright sun-sorry for the shadowy pictures)
Don’t be intimidated when the pieces don’t chip on their own – distress like you always have. But when they do their own thing – pure bliss!
