Old Trunk

I would of never thought this old spray painted trunk would turn out like this. I was working at the antique mall and was approached by a client and ask what I thought it would look like painted. I hesitate to answer as I look at this old trunk. It still smell like newly spray enamel spray paint. It was missing it handles and had a whole lots of problems structurally. I could see the potential thru all that and encourage my client I could  accomplish the look she was looking for.
 This before picture is after I found some new kitchen handles at Lowes that fit perfect where the old strap handles were missing. My husband help me out with the structure problem and cut two pieces of wood that he added to the bottom which later we would add rollers.
 ASCP in Old White with clear wax and a whole lot of dark wax.
The handles look perfect painted and wax.
The dark wax really brought out the detail in this old trunk.
 I really wish I would of took more pictures of the trunk. The rollers on the bottom was a great idea to easily move the heavy trunk around. My client just love the trunk and was so surprise how it turn out. Now I am on the hunt to find another one. The trunk was made out of wood and metal. Once again Annie Sloan to the rescue. You really can use this paint on any surface.
As always thank you for stopping by and all your sweet comments.

Sweet Dreams

Hello everyone. Real excited to show you the sweetest bedroom set I just finished.
As always before pictures and lots of after.
I saw great potential with these two pieces. Add some ASCP sweet Antoinette and Old White with a little wax ......
No before pictures of the bed frame, sorry. The bed frame had huge holes in the wicker inserts. I decided to reupholster the inserts with some vintage waverly fabric.
Love the dark wax on the Antoinette and Old White.
Minimum sanding and a whole lot of buffing.
Love the curly frenchy legs.
Hand-painted the vintage lamp to match the set.
The photos do not do this justice, maybe try some inside pictures at the mall tomorrow.
A few more pictures inside the mall.
All drawers are lined in vintage paper.

As always, thanks for your sweet comments.
Sharing once again with some of my favorite blog girlfriends.
