Yes, a new video! You may recognize this table from the entryway tour. It is painted in my all time favorite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan color. . . Graphite! In this video I share my favorite technique to get an old world look using this dark grey paint and both dark and clear soft waxes. I love the finished look of this piece, but do want to make a note that if you are painting in a lighter color than this graphite, I highly recommend you start with the clear soft wax under the dark. It will give you more control over the color. For this deep grey paint, I like the grab the heaviest tone in the dark wax, but on other pieces I do prefer it to be more subtle. You can take a look at my photo tour of the entryway in this post. If you want to see more of this look, check out my Duck Egg blue rocking chairs here, and a few of my other Graphite and Old White pieces in this post. If you are looking for a place to buy Annie Sloan goods, you can find a list of retailers here. I will warn you that it is highly addictive. I have ten more pieces (including 6 chairs) in my house lined up for Chalk Paint®. I will share those with you as I go. Enjoy the video tutorial! ~ Lia
