Country Sideboard in Emperor's Silk with Medium wax by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

 
This is a country server or sideboard or buffet or.... not really sure what to name it.
But let me tell you this, it is a beautiful piece of furniture. 
You know the ones that when you are working on it you are fitting it into every little spot in your home.
It would go perfect here.
With this sitting on top of it.
Oh, and at Christmas with the red I could do this....
Can you tell I would really like to keep this one?
LOVE IT!


 
 And of course it is in the Emperor's Silk that I love.
This time instead of doing the dark wax all over it I mixed the clear and dark and covered it in one coat.
It really seemed to go on much smoother and  a lot more even.

 The wood is maple and maple is just so nice to paint over.
So smooth.
Yummy, just love it.
 I really do think I need to keep this one.
Unless of course, until the next piece.
I am kind of addicted to this.



This is the before shot.
I found it at an estate sale, it had a price of $799.00 on it.
NO, I did not pay that much.
Lord, my husband would have killed me.
