A Little Antionette

Hello to all my blog friends. Been having a tough time posting. I have a new computer with windows 8 and its just giving me fits with my blog. Hopefully this computer and I will find love soon.

My paintbrush brush and I have been busy. Before picture of little French look chest without the drawers. Almost forgot to get a before picture.

Annie Sloan sweet Antionette and Old White.
Love the vintage wallpaper that lined the drawers.
Reused the original hardware and simply painted them with old white and finished with clear and dark wax, then buff.
Just love this sweet chest. Perfect for some lucky little lady.
Sharing with a few blog friends and trying to get back in the swing of things. Thanks for your support. Have a great weekend and happy March, come on spring!

Pretty in Graphite

I love Annie Sloan Graphite. It`s a soft black almost greyish black. This small curio needed some help, cute size and shape just not so attractive.
My work area is not very attractive either!
Love the color.
Graphite with clear wax and then I steel wool smooth.
Clean up and reuse the original hardware.
Really love how it turn out, hope everyone is warm in the east, have a great weekend.
