I literally ached to work on one of my own! As soon as I found her, I knew she would be a show stopper. I can totally see her at a wedding, can't you?
I'm calling her Amelia. Because, why not? I like giving special pieces their own names. I spend an awful lot of time with them and it feels like I become friends with them. They have so much soul.
I went simple and elegant- I think her lines speak for themselves and stand out with just a little distressing to bring out the detailing.
I think she is so dreamy... sigh.
I painted her up using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White, sanded her smooth with a 400 grit sandpaper, distressed her with a high grit sand paper along the edges and in the crevices, and then I sealed her with Clear Wax using my trusty wax brush and wiping her off with a rag. Buffed her to so that she has a lovely, soft sheen.
I die, don't you?
