~ Stylish Dresser Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® ~

This beautiful Michael Amini dresser was restyled by my Lady Butterbug customer LORI SHARP 
using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®

Lori shares with me why she decided to paint this wonderful piece.

"The bedroom furniture was bought about 6 years ago and the maker is Michael Amini ~ 
original furniture designs.  
It has natural marble insets in the piece so Annie's Graphite was a perfect color choice. 
 I bought a condo in Florida and thought the pieces would be to heavy in the color I bought them 
so I decided to take your class and see if I could do the 
technique and keep my bedroom furniture since I loved it so much!  
Now it will be beautiful sitting on beach wood floors!"

Here are the steps LORI followed:

1.) applied color Graphite - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® - let paint dry
2.) applied a wash of color Coco - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® - rubbing some paint off with a damp lint free cloth
3.) applied a wash of color Old White - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® - rubbing some paint off with a damp lint free          cloth 
4.) applied Annie's Soft Clear Wax using a Premium Wax Brush
5.) while Clear Wax is still wet apply small amounts of Annie's Soft Dark Wax using a Premium Wax Brush
6.) allow the waxes to dry overnight and buff with a lint free cloth to create a lustrous look
7.) apply small amount of metallic Gilding Wax if desired

 I wish to thank Lori for sharing her wonderful project pictures and
steps she used!
