Combining Waxes…

Green/Grey Combo

It’s obvious that green is a favorite of Trish, but grey is pulling through as a top contender in the mix…It’s seems to be as neutral as the browns, beige and tans have been for years!!! It obviously goes with all the beautiful blues from Annie Sloan, but using it with green simply shows off it’s vibrance and beauty as well.

This fabulous piece was done in a matter of minutes (well, ok… maybe a couple of hours), but what a difference it made to this ho-hum dark brown table (shown above). After a bit of distressing, the final touch was clear wax on top of the green and dark wax added to the grey.

For Sale…Sweet!!!

Don’t you love the richness? What have you done with your wax from Annie Sloan? PLEASE share so we can have fun too!!! Interested in buying this pretty little jewel? Drop by Total Bliss in Summerfield, NC or e-mail us about shipping.

    Beautiful combination of color. My husband is prepping a piece as I type and I was viewing the Friday feature at Miss Mustard Seed for ideas. I scrolled past yours and yelled, “Hold the phone, I think we have a contender!” Love the look!

    That looks lovely, I’ve often thought of using that color combo because I have leftover paint in both those colors, but I always think it will look tacky, you’ve shown me how wonderful it can look…what vision. I’m following to see what you come up with next

    Love the bright colors – I’ve mixed dark and clear wax together to make a less darkening mix, but had not thought of using different waxes on different sections. I’m workng on several mismatched pieces of my own bedroom furniture, along with a dining room buffet – I’ve jumped in with both feet!

    I’m enjoying your blog so much – now if I could just make my Blgger allow me to comment as ME instead of as Anonymous…

    I have a table almost identical to this in my garage. Was thinking of painting the top one color and the legs another, but I like what you’ve done, too. Hmmm…

    I just want you to know, that I will be stealing your color combo for something. I don’t have a piece of furniture in mind right now but… I am sure I will come up with something. I feel like I have been in a creative rut when it came to colors lately. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

    LOVE the color combo, but am I mistaken that it is only ASCP Antibes Green for the green or did you mix it with Old White or another color?? Dyeing (haha)to know!! I am now a happy follower!!
