31 Days of ASCP, Day 22…..Scenes from a Porch

This fabulous table was the second piece I painted with ASCP.  You can read about the entire before and after project on my “other” blog One Nutty Girl.  Where was Trish for this project?  Tooling around in Europe for 2 weeks!  After I finished this Duck Egg beauty  I decided I HAD to keep it.  We had just started a screen porch project and I decided to put it on the porch once it was completed.  
The chairs are Old White and super distressed!
This bench was originally white.  I loved it, but wanted to add a little bit more color.  I slapped on one super quick messy coat of Versailles, let it dry and then got out my Ryobi Corner Cat and distressed it.  One coat of clear wax and I had the perfect super quick makeover!  

Check out my fabulous ceiling!  No, it is not Annie Sloan, but I had to show it off!  I’m just smitten with the blue bead board!
Thanks for visiting….we love our followers!!!

    HI I have found your blog via pintrest. I am new with using ASCP and started a few projects, needless to say I am IN LOVE. However, I am in love with this table you did in duck egg blue, what stain did you do for the wood table top? I tried to click on the link to your other blog, onenuttygirl.com, and it said it doesn’t exist anymore or something like that. Would you mind commenting on what stain you used for the table top- I can’t stop thinking about and want to replicate your beautiful work. PS I love your blog.

    I also would love to know how to do this technique and the colors you used for this table. The link takes you to no where.

      The table is very simple…just duck egg on the bottom, distressed with clear wax. The top is a wash of 50:50 water and Old White. Painted on, then wiped in with a rag. I then finished with clear wax and then some dark wax.
