Today it’s a Console

In my entryway stands a table that has served many purposes. Besides a console it has been a sofa table, a server in the dining room, and a makeshift desk. Once it even filled in as a dining table. And it wasn’t always painted. It was one of the very first things in my home to receive a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk PaintⒸ. This beautiful blue is a result of layering and blending all the colors above. It was finished with Light, Dark and Gilding wax.

Leslie, I love your entry table. Looks like I may have to copy that on an old sewing table I use a sofa table. Keep up the good work and Brandy is so excited to meet you. Hope you get to Vintage Style and Designs soon. Sandy

i love the look of layering but not sure how to do it.. Do I paint first goat all over piece then start adding another color in places? How do I keep from making next color too much? Do I dry brush?? Sorry for so many questions but I really want to paint like this.. I have a chest of drawers I want to paint grays and white. Maybe with a touch of silver paste. Thank you for any ideas on how to.
