Today we kicked off our “Creating the French Look” event in the store. As part of this event we have an in-store contest (check the Home page for details) and we are working on a couple of projects. This week’s project is a console table whose finish will be based on the Crackle Varnished Console Table on page 47 of Annie Sloan’s book “Creating the French Look.”
Today is our first day of the project, feel free to follow along at home – or better yet, stop into the store and see for yourself!
Crackle Varnished Console Table Steps:
Paint a coat of Louis Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan
Paint a smooth coat of Old White Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan
Apply gold leaf to the edge of the table top
Clear wax & distress apron & legs
Apply Step 1 & Step 2 Craqueleur to top & over gold leafed edge
Apply dark wax to the Craqueleured top & gold leafed edge
Paul did this first step today. He painted a coat of Louis Blue over the entire table applying the paint in a textured, chunky way on the apron & legs and smoothly on the top.
