When my mamma was visiting me in January, we went to a cute little shop called Deja Nu in Virginia Beach. It is a shop that sells used furniture as well as furniture that the owner has redone herself. The owner was so sweet and we had a blast talking to her about all kinds of different techniques on distressing furniture and different kinds of paint that can be used. I bought a hutch that was half finished as well as a shelf that was undone. I love both and couldn't wait to get my hands on them and finish them.
I finished the hutch a few months ago (post to come) and today I finally got my hands on that shelf and made it beautiful.
Here is the before picture of the shelf.
Here is what the top looked like after I had taken my little mouse sander to it.
Another picture of the shelf after it was sanded a little bit.
My sister is visiting me and she came out on the balcony and took a few pictures of my project and me in progress.
I didn't know she was taking a picture on the first one so I made sure to smile for the second one.
I used Annie Sloan Old White on this shelf (like all of my projects because it's my favorite) and then I used the Soft Wax in clear with my new brush that I bought a few months ago.
Here is the finished product....
Here is a picture of one of the corners...so sexy!!
Here is the top corner.
Another picture of the top corner, this one with the top included.
Here is a view from the top.
So what do you think?
I love it and am so glad that I finally got her done!!
I linked up to a few blogs I enjoy, links are below.
