18 Aug French Blue Highboy with Black Wax
I started with a great antique highboy with original Hepplewhite pulls
Then busted into a brand new product by Old Town Paints
This new paint is delicious and is nothing like anything we’ve ever offered
This new chalk paint from Old Town is a primer, paint and sealer rolled in one! It’s so smooth, rich and creamy, brushing on and leveling out beautifully. Your finished piece will be matte. I’ll share more details about this product but I’m getting so many requests for it already that I needed to at least do a sneak peek. Because I have also spent the past several months recovering both from my surgery and helping my sister through her cancer, I hand selected several local furniture painting artists to experiment with it. Everyone loves it! Not only do they love it, they’ve all ordered more.
So, as of 8.19.17 I have a handful of the most colors in stock. Email email@example.com to get a jump on this new product as it will be a while before it’s on officially on our shelves. I will order more soon but my sister passed away so I need a little time to get it all together. I did add a Simply Finished line item on our Online Shizzle Shop so you can order online but you’ll need to specify the color you want. I shot a picture of the quarts I have on hand today. The colors are shown on the front of these labels.
New Simply Finished One-Step Primer-Paint-Sealer by Old Town Paints
I order weekly. To pre-order Simply Finished, send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s so cool that you don’t have to seal Simply Finished Paint!
Simply paint it on and you’re finished. I however decided that I wanted to bring out all the details of this piece using black wax. Because I ended up sealing it with wax, it would have made more sense to just use Old Town’s regular Chalk Style Paint because it’s more cost effective. Make sense?
If you’re going to seal it with a wax or a clear coat, use the regular Old Town Chalk Style Paint. If you want to simply paint and be done, then spend a few extra dollars and go for the Simply Finished Paint by Old Town Paints.
Applying Black Wax over Old Town Paint’s French Blue
I scrubbed it in with my Vintiquities Wax Brush, feathered it out with the bristles then wiped back the excess with our new cloths
There’s not much more to say, it really is that easy to create this beautiful finish
Available at our Not So Shabby location in Holland, Michigan
Give it a try, it’s easy!
Thanks for stopping by, Stay tuned for more painted furniture makeovers at Shizzle!
a hui hou!
