I will start this post as I do with most of my studio visits with NO before picture. I get so fixated with my vision of the “after”,I tend to dive in and skip that essential image. Picture ugly metal vintage floor lamp.
Ok,now that we have established that…lets get to the pretty part.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint French Linen,mixed with Off White,in several shades.
Once painted, I followed with Annie Sloan Soft Clear wax. Then for me the fun begins. The detail work,I love the detail work!
Yes,it takes lots of time but this lamp was full of yummy details just begging to be brought to life.
I find the dark wax worked into all those fabulous details,just makes them sing!
These beauties are easy to find,and a perfect accent in your home.
Next time you see one of those ugly metal floor lamps,don’t pass it up. Pick up your brush and go to work,and don’t forget those details!
