…annie sloan clear wax with lint-free rag tutorial

I get  requests all the time to do more tutorials. A few months ago I asked you all what you would like to see. I received many great ideas! The problem is getting my kids out of the house long enough to tape something 🙂 I do get loads of questions about clear waxing with a lint-free rag since this is now my process and many people asked me to demo this. So I did.

You can check it out here on YouTube

Basically, instead of using a round, wax brush I now use a lint-free cloth. The process is much smoother and goes faster than with the brush. Apply in a horizontal motion and cover any bare spots along the way. You will be happy with the result using this method.

Problems viewing the video? Let me know. Thanks! Next Tutorial will be on applying gold leaf to your piece. Stay tuned.

…antoinette

Don’t under estimate the effect you can have on a room using Antoinette. Just like the name suggests it is a feminine, lovely & soft color – pink. Here’s Annie’s description: “Old fashioned roses and the colour of old plaster. This is a soft pale pink with a hint of brown in it so the pink is not too sweet.”

Last week I refinished a bed for little Fiona – not my Fiona, but another one just as cute! Her mama found this super sweet spindled twin bed at Goodwill.

A dear friend gave me this sweet, little vanity & it was the fitst piece that Greta painted on her own. She did an amazing job!

It didn’t sell at Luckett’s so I brought it home and decided to let her have it in her room. After all, she needs a place to water color her Irises 🙂
