Thursday, August 20, 2015's been a long time since I posted here! Face book seems to be my avenue, and that keeps me busy. I have been thinking about starting back up here, so we will see how that goes! I wanted to talk about Lime Paint today. Or La Chaux if you wanna be fancy! has amazing products. They introduced Lime paint about a year ago. I have done several pieces with it, and I want to share this one with you. This was the oh hum boring old brown dresser, probably from the 70's or 80's. Today, I am going to just tease you with the drawers, tomorrow I will stage it all up, and show you the finished product, so stay tuned! First I painted a base coat in our Ivory Vintage Furniture Paint, then I used a color called Savonette. It is a very soft vintage green in our lime paint. Now, Lime paint is very thick, I like to say it gives a lot of texture. After I applied 1 coat of our Ivory Vintage Furniture Paint, I applied 1 coat of Lime paint. Normally I stay with the grain, and keep it all neat. With lime paint you can go crazy and be a little messy if you want! After it dried, I used a damp cloth to "distress" the details. Then I used our Amber Wax, to wax all over, then I used the dark brown wax in the crevices, and cleaned that up with the Amber! As I said earlier, this is just a sneak peek. You will have to check back tomorrow to see the end result!
                         Isn't this the prettiest can of paint!

Sorry I forgot to take a before photo when it was brown. This is after I did one coat of Ivory & one coat of Savonette. Most paint dries darker, Lime Paint dries lighter. The wax brings the color out, as you will ses in the next photo!

    This is after I distressed, & waxed with our Amber wax. Do you see  how it looks "Limey" now
This is after I used our dark brown wax in the details. Notice the swirl" just POPS now!! Ok, this is it for today. Stop by tomorrow to see it all done!!
