I am so in love with this new (vintage 1976) furniture I got for my master bedroom at the lake!
I got a Queen Anne Highboy and a nightstand. I got these beautiful pieces for FREE a friend was giving them away. I knew the second I saw it, I wanted it. I’m now on the hunt for another similar nightstand to redo.
This is what it looked like before. Very pretty but didn’t go with my lake decor. I went with Annie Sloan Napoleonic Blue and her Dark Wax.
This was by far the most challenging piece of furniture I have done! It was a lot of work but worth it!
This is the paint only, before the dark wax was applied. So bright, I know! But I had a vision. This paint is amazing. It covers well, no sanding needed! I just used Awesome Cleaner to wipe off any residue, that’s it. I painted two coats of blue then applied the dark wax.
This was after the wax was applied but before buffing.
This is after buffing.
Here’s the nightstand.
The tools I used:
These brushes. The big brush is a chalk paint brush. I used it mostly. The others were for small detail areas.
Awesome cleaner from dollar store…it’s well, awesome!
I wore a mask while using the Awesome. It has a strong odor.
The paint and wax I used. I used a soft cloth to buff the wax.
