Annie, MC and I Have Performed Magic!

Well everyone......it's unbelievable, but between Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint, MC and Yours Truly we were able to  transform  the entire feel of our Master Bath!!!

Before



MC SETTING UP!



AND THE WORK BEGINS..................

 PAINTING DONE!!!


WE DECIDED TO MIX THE WAXES.   THREE CLEAR TO ONE DARK
It was decided that I would do the wax portion of the project.  We do share the load every now and then.

 After "Playing" with the wax on the door fronts .....we quickly learned that the combination idea would not work.  Not consistent!   No two doors were the same!  I was able to "erase" most of the dark appearance using the clear  (a hint on Annie's instructions)   .....with a lot of elbow grease.  The entire product is so flexible. It's possible to change or correct the look as you go along!

The end result, after erasing, was perfect.  We left the "frame" sections with just the clear wax. Again a custom look.

When we finished it was SO APPARENT that the mirror's  gold frame HAD to match!!!!

Yesterday, MC painted it and I added the clear wax last night!!!




  The pictures really don't show how BEAUTIFUL THEY LOOK!!!!!

Thanks to Pam who writes Simple Details.....HERE  .....the Post titled Hutch Color !
This was our inspiration.

  2. I needed to take a break and I'm so happy I did. To borrow a catch phrase from Candace Olson, it's simply devine.

    You are MC are certainly a dynamic duo. I love the softness of the color you chose.

  3. Hi, Patty -
    The cabinetry looks wonderful Lovely color! It's neutral but warm. You and MC ought to consider painting furniture for others.
