PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!

I think I've finally found the bottom of my wee table collection in the garage.
Just in time to make space for the 3 desks, 4 dressers and 3 side tables I've
This is Daphne, all leggy and curvy and sah-weet.
In her previous incarnation, she was a tiny telephone stand, ready to bleed all over anyone who might dare to dress her in something a bit more dazzling.
So I gave her a first coat of shellac. She only wimpered at the beginning.
Then she relaxed and gave a big 'ole sigh when I added a couple coats of Annie Sloan's Provence (LOVE this color!)
Hand sanded her around the edges here and there....
As well as a gentle all over sanding with 320 grit so she was nice and smooth.
Waxed her best I could using Annie's soft wax.....
And I do believe she's forgiven me for giving her a makeover. She's kinda high and mighty now, having had such special 'spa' treatment. She's asking for hot stones now. (shaking my head)
Daphne is one of the tables I had a really hard time getting the wax on evenly.
Her top was super shiny in some places, and totally cloudy in others.
I had to sand down her top and redo it. I don't know what I did differently, but she's all even now :)
If you missed my previous post about my experience with chalk paint and wax, HERE 'TIS. The comments are also enlightening. I haven't given up yet, and thanks to a couple chalk paint retailers who read that post, I'm getting some new products in the mail to try this week, so look for more product reviews soon!
Daphne rooms with her sisters Evangeline, Lyssa, Lori, Bess, Sabrina, and Bethany at The Serendipity House as they await adoption by their forever families. 4 of the girls have already packed up and gone, so if you're local to NE Indiana, there's three sisters still available!
Thanks for stopping over! Would love to have you follow me with Bloglovin' or facebook....I blog for community, and love meeting new-to-me bloggers. :)
