Custom Order for Furniture in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
Excited, nervous -- that's me. First custom order here in Des Moines, Iowa headquarters for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! Here is the ink stained yet structurally wonderful piece! Found it in the basement of an estate sale, dirty and forlorn!
Now we are transitioning it into a reading nook coffee table, custom for a birthday, reflecting the recipient's love of various European places. Here we are after some minor repairs to remove a "wobble" and two coats of Emperor's Silk. It will not be this red in the end, but a chestnut color once waxing is finished.
Meanwhile, the stenciling of cities/places has begun....
While waiting between letters to dry, also working on a little harlequin design table...More tomorrow!
