After spending the past week and weekend painting the chairs and the base of my table I finally finished with the Annie Sloan Paris Grey. I started this morning putting on the second coat of Old White but was not impressed with how it was looking. (Lucky for me I had only painted a lower rung before deciding I didn't like it.) So, I decided to sand the Paris Grey (by hand) on all the chairs and base and it was more to my liking. It is very shabby/grey. Because the chairs already had a under coat of an Old white to begin with, that is the white you see peeking out beneath the grey.
This is before I started applying the clear wax.
This is after one coat of clear wax and no buffing yet. I wanted to let it sit until tomorrow to harden before I buffed it out.
All of the chairs and base have been waxed and will be buffed tomorrow. I will show pictures after I have buffed and put the chairs seats and tabletop back
This has been a learning experience for me not to mention a very time consuming one...A fairly large project for a first attempt but considering everything, I am pleased with the outcome.
I know there are some of you who aren't into a worn/faded look but for me I am satisfied with the outcome. Could I have don't better? Probably, but I am always my own worst critic. What do you think of them so far?
