Annie Sloan Tour Pictures are worth 1000 Words

I hope my little video does a better job of telling the story of my day at The Annie Sloan Workshop better than my written words.  
It was a great way to spend my day, and become even more inspired by amazing ladies & one great guy from Virginia Beach  ; )

Sentimental Childhood Desk

My girlfriend still has her childhood desk.  I am so proud of her for never parting with it.  But, it has signs of a life well lived that my buddy would rather not see.  So, she called me.

Little Desk Before
 Yes, there are battlescars.  Think, the Velveteen Rabbit.  Very well loved.
 Ta Da ~ After
 I used Annie Sloan Old White with just clear wax 
 Painting the inside of drawers is fun and beautiful.
 The knobs (jewlery) make the little desk sparkle again.  I LOVE these knobs !
My gorgeous buddy is also my neighbor, good friend and talented mommy who designed my Lucky Logo.  Thank you Yolanda for being so amazing and trusting me with a bit of your past !
