I thought the gold leafed mirror and french linen candle sticks played well with this glam table! i can’t wait to use this gorgeous color on decorations for the holidays!
after patiently waiting for Annie Sloan to release her latest color we received our first quarts of burgundy last week! it was certainly worth the wait. burgundy is such a rich, beautiful color and I immediately had a piece in mind to try it out on. i thought burgundy would be perfect on an asian inspired console table i scored at an estate sale in new orleans. this table was in very, very, very bad shape – filthy is an understatement. it was such a sad specimen i never took a proper “before” photo. after a few rounds of motsenbacker’s paint prep cleaner it was ready to be painted. i applied two full coats of burgundy chalk paint® and decided i’d try to go straight to dark wax. burgundy took the dark wax like a champ! it deepened this beautiful color and made it even more glamorous than i anticipated. i decided to kick it up another notch by adding gilding wax to the edge of the table in king gold. and now it’s ready for its debut! here’s my burgundy console table in all its fabulous glory!
