A green ( I know... it looks blue in the photo ) painted pine shelf has been the first piece of furniture to get the Annie Sloan "French linen"paint treatment at Chez Cloth Shed...
Sanded back to reveal the underneath green colour....then polished with clear wax.
A small, gold convex mirror and little tray also received the A.S. treatment too...
Now.... it could be that I was painting in sub zero temperatures in the garage yesterday....not good.... but I did find it too thick and gloopy straight from the tin and also it started to drag and clump as I brushed over previously painted areas. Consequently I diluted it with a little water.... which obviously helped the application.
I will persevere with it of course, but I think for small pieces it is fine and for larger pieces of furniture... I will be sticking to my eggshell or emulsion and wax Farrow and Ball.
A pretty single eiderdown and two quite different biscuit barrels from Tuesday complete the new stock pictures.
And finally, I just had to buy this battered tin sign for the stall....my secret is now out!
Have a good weekend, and stay warm,
