I'm in the middle of a sofa project using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for the first time and I'm not sure that I'm liking the results.
Let me explain, I painted two coats of pure white, distressed it, which, by the way, was so easy and fun! ( I may have overdone it on the distressing.)
Here is what it looked like:
I love this look, so very light and feminine, but the goal was to age it, to make it look as if it has been around a long time...
Sooo, I put the clear wax on next, and followed with the dark. (Without drying time in between, this is what some tutorials have said works best.)
I worked in small sections, brushing it on and then using a cloth to rub it in and remove the excess.
This is how it looks now:
It does look older for sure. I guess I'm not sure that I want it so brown, do you think it looks dirty? Or like it's faux antiqued in a really shoddy way. I like things to look fresh and I
don't like faux anything.
Or maybe I'm not getting the procedure right, it is my first time after all. And I'm telling myself that with the fabric on it won't stand out so much.
So, please give me some advice, I would love your input! My husband has put so much work into reinforcing the frame, (we had it all in pieces) and I really, really want it to turn out right!
Thanks so much!!
