The "before" as found
This folding screen I picked up this summer at a garage sale for $5. I could not pass it up. Not my style for sure, but I have been looking for a screen to use in my booth at the upcoming local holiday craft show.
The 2 clover leaf tables were $10 for the pair and I love the Victorian design, and they were begging to be white! I also want to use them for the booth.
Last month I took a class on using Annie Sloan Chalk paint, so tried my hand using it on these pieces. For the screen, I mixed Provence blue with Old white and came up with this pretty robins egg blue. I waxed it with a medium distress brown.
Since the center panels were a bamboo, using spray adhesive and laying over lace curtain sections That I picked up at Value Village, made it look as if the curtains were gathered.I am still going to add more cottage touches of lace and also my shop banner,
The tables were painted Old white, then even tho you may not be able to see it here, I waxed them with clear wax mixed with provence blue. the blue falls nicely into the scroll work.
