Distressed side table in Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue

       Here it is, finally, my first painted distressed furniture that i put the chalk paint to test to. It was a lot of hard work i have to say. Maybe its just me, but after working on it over a weekend, i ended up with a bad flu. Plus, i felt like i ran a marathon- my arms and legs were aching. Must by my exponentially declining fitness level. :p After painting it with Annie Sloan chalk paint in 'Old White' and 'Duck Egg Blue', i clear waxed it, distressed it, clear waxed again, dark waxed it, and finally, buffed it. Phew, now i know why distressed furniture costs more-ironic i know! U can call me crazy, but do that behind my back. Please ;p

In the living room, in daylight

Nightview in warm light

Close up of the drawer

I couldnt decide if it looked better in the living room or as a bedside table

Maybe i still prefer it as a side table in the living room

       I do intend to have an Etsy shop and create a listing for this side table, or maybe an Ebay shop, but this cant be the only item i have in store so do look out for more upcoming projects :) In the meantime this will be up for sale in other ads online. Do contact me if you are interested. Have great weekend everyone!
