Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
Our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
Our troubles will be miles away.
Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.
I tried the Annie Sloan Chalk paint on a garage sale find that I found over the summer. I have heard so many great things about the Annie Sloan Chalk paint so I wanted to try it on this cute piece of furniture.
Sorry, I did not take "before" photos of this project.
This was also one of my first time sanding a piece of furniture to give it some wear. I need to practice on a few more items :)!
I applied one coat of Annie Sloan's Paris Grey Chalk paint first then it took two coats of Annie Sloan's White Chalk paint. All coats dried really fast! Once the last coat was dried then I started sanding it to give it the worn look. I recommend you sand in an area where it can get messy or dust can fly. The paint comes off of course like chalk dust.
Once I was done sanding then I wiped the dust off with a damp cloth and let dry. Then I applied Annie Sloan's Clear Wax and rubbed it off. I LOVED the results!
