Happy Thursday Everyone!!

I finally finished my first project using Annie Sloan paint and the dark wax!  I think I was so nervous about using this for the first time that I just let time drag and drag.

Now that I did it once, I want to know where “she” has been all my life. LOL  Not having to do a coat of primer on a project is huge and it is so much faster to do a coat of wax then it is to use glaze and wait for that to dry for two more days. Then a coat of protector over the paint and wait for that to cure.

I decided to do my first project by purchasing a corbel that is 20” tall with some nice detailing.

 I selected Annie Sloan Chateau Grey as the base coat, then applied the clear wax let that set and then applied the dark wax.  I love the aged quality it gave the corbel.

I decided to put this corbel near our coffee bar (check out the post) in the great room to add some more character to that area of the room.  I’ll be doing posts on the great room in the near future.
