Yes...I took out my wallet and paid money for this.
Brian cracked me up because when he saw it in the trunk of my car he asked sadly,
"So is this what we're doing now?" Ha!
Hunter green, burgundy, stencils, distressing...we've got it all.
It was $5.99 "FIRM," in case you were wondering. They couldn't let it go for a mere $4.99. Obviously!
This is how it looked with one coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint "Pure White."
...aaaaand with two coats. My photography skills are lacking,
but believe me, it still looks bad.
The top is a damaged mess, which is only exacerbated by the two coats of white paint I added.
It looks like thick primer on top of a terrible paint job.
But...better. Right? Or am I kidding myself?
I'm weighing the options. 1) Throw it in the trash. Seriously.
2) Trick someone into buying it off of Craigslist for $30, MAX.
3) Use an ASCP Louis Blue "wash" and then finishing it off with a soft wax.
I'm leaning towards #3, but I'm seriously considering the other two. Thoughts?
