I’ve been working on refinishing a few pieces I received from my 95 year old aunt. I used Annnie Sloan chalk paint with the clear wax on both projects. There’s a million great posts on how to apply Annie Sloan paint, so I won’t repeat it here, but hopefully you can get some ideas!
This cedar chest was in pretty bad shape. Here’s the “before” picture:
I used Paris Grey to updated it a little. Like my stairs? I refinished those too.
I also got this great little desk that my kids use for homework. While I was working on it, I found a drawer signed by my great Uncle dated 1978 as the last time it was refinished. Here’s the before:
And here’s the after. I used Fresh Linen for the main part of the desk and Graphite for the top.
