I usually don't post furniture stuff but wanted to post this since it was my project for a couple of days since my neck surgery. This was pretty non-strenuous and doesn't take much time.
I love chalk paint and this time I used a cheaper version that I purchased from Michael's. I also used their light wax and dark which was liquid form. With Annie Sloan I use a paste.
So I painted over a table in my half bath and really liked it so I decided to go for it on the Hoosier cabinet.
So I removed the hardware from the cabinet, painted one coat of blue. Used packages of old papers I bought and placed them to cover each door using Modge podge. Then, I went over the papers with triple thick.
Next, I added one more coat of the blue. Chalk paint dries so fast and that's the main reason I love it. After that I added the white (clear) cream wax as shown above. You let it dry and you can buff it with a cloth as long as it is one that isn't going to leave debri behind. I just wiped mine off a tad. Then, I used the dark wax which again was a liquid wax from Michael's. I painted it on with a paint brush which leaves the stroke marks. I always paint with foam brushes when I do furniture. It's not messy and it saves on paint. I let the dark wax dry and added new hardware. The drawer knobs at the bottom were $3.99 each but half off at hobby lobby. The top ones I gave a box of. So, on this piece I used a 60 grit piece of sandpaper to distress it. It just takes less time which I'm all about.
And the knobs from hobby lobby.
I need to tell anyone and everyone always always wax with a clear wax before you do dark over it. If not, you may mess up and have to repaint the thing.
