I’m working on a set of candle metal wall sconces….my clients want them Old White to match their newly renovated bedroom!

These are awesome in design and style! Curled bottoms, large curved tops! The cuttings in the metal were a bit of a pain….every time I painted one side, I had to go to the back side immediately and wipe away the drips!  These actually took 4 coats of Old White but I think it would have been good with 3 if it weren’t for the cutwork….ta da

I love them! My clients did too! We lightly slightly distressed the metal using our Annie Sloan medium grade sanding pad.

Prettiest bed ever!  And we did it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®! So sweet and romantic I picked light colors for this full size bed. Cream and Old White

Then we distressed the amazing raised floral carving in the center and added the tiniest bit of dark wax too! This accentuated the carved floral pattern!

This bed was graced with amazing detailing which we took full of advantage of by outlining and highlighting different beveled and mitered edges!  We love her and we miss her too because she went off the Indiana to her new home! Blessings pretty bed!
