Bitten by the ASCP bug!

After my granddaughter and I finished this project, I decided to grab my sample pot of ASCP Provence and see what I could do to transform a bedside table from my room.  I purchased it a couple of years ago at a large community yard sale.

The table is pretty banged up with a faux leather top.  I knew the carving in the legs would distress beautifully and I think I was right.

Hello, gorgeous!

I noticed something right away.  I like the way the Provence covered so much better than the white.  Even the first coat was nice without any brush marks.  I can't say that about Old White.  The sample pot was enough to do this the table with two coats and I have enough left over to to a shelf also in my bedroom.  Once again, I first waxed with clear wax and then sparingly applied the dark wax where I thought appropriate.

I don't want to go crazy with painted wood pieces all over the house but it is so tempting.  My Hitchcock chairs are safe but the hutch and dining room table are in my sights!

Looks great! I have not used the annie sloan brand, but have tried the cece caldwell kind and found the same thing with the white versus a colour.
