my updated hall tree

Here is my vintage hall tree after I painted it with chalk paint. 

If you know me, then you know how much I love this Tiffany blue color.


I achieved this color by mixing equal parts of Annie Sloan florence and provence.
{Sammie loves it too!}


I love the results.


One coat of wax has been applied, and I will finish off a second coat of wax in three days.


 Here's any easy tip for painting around a mirror or glass.
 Just slide post-it notes under the wood frame.  No taping needed!


 The before, above.  Good bye green!
{next I will have to tackle the walls!}



ciao! Fabiana

  1. Oooh, I LOVE the color you came up with by mixing two of my favorites! The bold color is perfect for that piece. And thanks for the genius tip about the post-its! :)

  2. Do you always use two coats of clear wax? I've always just waxed once. Does it make the finish glossier? Thanks

    1. it is not always needed. But since we use this everyday, I wanted the extra protection and finish.
