Paris Grey Buffet

 OK…so here is the only before shot I have because as usual, I get so excited about painting that I always forget to take pictures.  I had already started painting the top when I remembered and ran to get my camera.
 After cleaning the buffet, I painted a coat of (ASCP) Paris Grey.  It was too heavy of a piece to bring into the house to paint so I had to work fast in the heat of the garage.  The paint dries quickly.
 Next, I sanded areas that I wanted highlighted to give it a distressed look then dry brushed
 (ASCP) Old White.

I let all the paint dry thoroughly overnight and then topped it off with Annie Sloan Clear Wax

 for lasting protection.  I really like the finish on the hardware so didn’t have to touch it at all. (All the other pieces I painted last week (posted below) had shinny gold hardware so I spray painted those a creamy white.  I didn’t have the Paris Grey paint color yet so I mixed my own paint using (ASCP) Old White with Acrylic Black to desired grey color.  Needless to say, I had to purchase more Old White when I went to pick up supplies.  I also splurged and bought the Annie Sloan Wax Brush.  Wow, it made the wax so easy to apply.)  I can’t wait to get started on my new dining room table and chairs, plus I still have another serving table to re-finish.  My plan is to keep these pieces though.  This time I won’t forget to take photos!
