I think the sawing is his favorite part.
Sunday afternoon he finished putting it together.
At this point I had to question him about the measurements.
He whipped out his tape measure and sure enough it seemed to be correct.
Now it was time for me to work my magic with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Versailles.
I really like Versailles. It has a greenish tint but is still neutral.
Saturday Jim attached the headboard to the bed frame and I applied two coats of chalk paint. It dries quickly so I didn't have to wait long between coats. Sunday afternoon I applied the wax. First I used clear wax and then just a touch of dark wax.
I have been looking for a headboard for the guest room for a long time.
I never could find just what a wanted. I think this will work perfectly in this room.
Several weeks ago I used the Versailles Chalk Paint on a quilt rack my mother-in-law hired a woodworker to make for me out of some old walnut wood that Jim's father had collected.
I decided to try my new chalk paint color on the quilt rack with the dark wax.
I really like the texture accentuated by the dark wax.
Welcome to my guest room.
