Well, we did it. We dropped our oldest off at college and let me tell you it was one of the hardest things I have ever, ever done! Once we left the college, I saw a billboard that said Big Valley Antique Center next exit. So that is what we did. I only had 15 minutes to shop so it was a quick whirl around the shop because they were ready to close. I found two wooden pieces of art and an old Pepsi crate. Not bad for a quick stop and it did help cheer me up a bit!
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. For the first coat I used Paris Grey. Once it was dry I painted over it with Old White. Then when everything was dry, I used my sanding block to highlight the indentations on the sea horse and conch shell. I am loving these two pieces and will definitely be taking them to the Island Home.
