Now that school is back I won't be able to paint nearly as much as I have been the past few months. Believe it or not, teaching really is a time consuming career! I'll definitely be painting on the weekends though!
I recently bought this oak (I think?) server at a consignment store. Some natural wood is gorgeous but this just wasn't my style. I wasn't digging the tiger-like stripes in the wood. It has awesome bones though, and is in great condition.
I mixed two colors of Annie Sloan chalk paint to get this blueish-gray color. I did two coats of paint, sanded it ever so slightly, and then finished it with a protective wax. I also changed out the hardware, adding new glass knobs.
I've said it before, but I am absolutely obsessed with old servers and sideboards. Beautiful and useful at the same time. This one is great, lots of storage, and the mirror is in excellent condition.
