After a brief painting hiatus, I am back. I just completed another piece for a client this weekend. And I must confess, I was very scared when this piece was dropped off at my house. It was blonde oak, brass and in really rough shape. I don't know why I have such an aversion to brass, but it really makes me shudder.
It was quite the process to complete this piece. I stained the top which was a new technique for me. Stay tuned for all the details on the refinishing process later this week. For now, just enjoy the beauty of this transformed piece.
For this makeover, I used a 2:1 mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and Old White followed up with clear and dark wax. The top was stained with Minwax Polyshades in Espresso.
Just a reminder that my services are for hire in the Chicagoland area. Check out my Refinishing Services tab for more info. I would love to help you bring a dated piece back to life.
