Annie Sloan~Arles

 My mom had this little table just sitting in a closet, and it was begging me to take it out and give it some attention! Do you have pieces that talk to you too? She wasn't going to use it anymore so I took it off her hands ( I'm kind like that) LOL. I'm using it in our little sitting room. I'm almost done with the changes that have been made in their, just waiting on a few things then I'll have the reveal. I've been dying to try AS Arles and I thought this was the perfect little piece to try it on.
Before..
 This came the Bombay Co. years ago.
Here's her new look..
 You guy's are even getting a little peek at the new rug and white slipcovers I bought for the chairs that were in here.



  This color looks great when it's sanded and the waxes are applied. She's very happy to be getting some attention again :) Have a super week!

Martina,

I love it! The Arles color is beautiful and makes the table. I have been using some of the paints on a couple of projects. I seem to have a hard time with the distressing.

That is such a pretty color Martina. I have used it and love it too.
My new url is http://debbie-debbiedoos.com You have to add it back on. I am still trying to recoup comments, it is coming along.

I love how that turned out! That's a lot less bright than the sample card shows for that color. Can't wait to see the slipcovered chairs too!
