I don't know if you are like me, in that, I find I must be creative in someone on a regular basis. Creativity here takes many forms - sewing, knitting, crochet, painting furniture, scrapbook journaling, baking, rearranging furniture, gardening. All these feed my need to create beauty in my life.
After I washed up some dishes, I folded 2 huge baskets of laundry and then got busy on my project.
I did not go buy more paint in a new color, so the project had to be one that I wanted to be painted in Annie Sloan Emperor's Silk or Florence.
I decided to paint Tim's bedside table in Emperor's Silk to match my bedside cabinet.
His cabinet was a free little cabinet we got from a friend years ago. It was a soft white with a high gloss finish.
I gave it a light sanding, because of the gloss, but probably did not need to do that.
I painted right in my bedroom. I gave it two coats and then I lightly sanded with a very fine grit, and gave it a coat of clear wax.
I like the way it turned out. I will probably get new knobs for these drawers but it worked to just paint them for now.
So there you have it, my Saturday project. I was done before everyone got home, and in time for me to make dinner.
What do you think? This is now the fourth project I have done with this quart of chalk paint. Have you ever painted with chalk paint? I know that jAne has. She inspired me to try it in the first place several years ago.
