Swedish Paint Finish, part 3

Here is the last installment of video on how to achieve a Swedish Paint Finish. Here we will be adding the last ingredient, wax. I use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint dark wax, you can probably use any dark wax you have.

So I need a new hobby like a hole in the head. But, unfortunately or fortunately I’ve found a new one. Sigh…

I’m loving making my own furniture. Here are a few places I’ve found inspiration. Ana-White.com and Shanty2chic.com

Here are a few pics of pieces I would like to attempt some day.

This came off of Pinterest. Unfortunately I don’t have the source. Building a ottoman should be easy..
