I’m super-happy with my 2nd finished project, my new kitchen unit.

After lots and lots of sanding…


I was happy with the layered/grainy finish.


I set about adding one layer of Annie Sloan clear wax, applying it with a standard paintbrush that I bought from a hardware store.

As this is to be used in the kitchen, I waited several days for this to dry then added a second coat of wax to improve the durability and make it a little more water-resistant. The wax isn’t waterproof, but it adds a lot of protection to the paint.


I also saw this fab sign hung up in my most local Annie Sloan stockist. The shop is quite new, and it is called ‘Gift Shop on the Corner’. I LOVE having a stockist within walking distance! Although my bank balance is not so keen 🙂
