It was my first big project with the Annie Sloan paint and I am a convert! It is so much fun and easier to use than regular paint, dries quickly, and distresses beautifully. I used Old White and Duck Egg Blue on this. It's pricey, but seems to go a long ways--plus you don't have to sand or prime. I just wish we had a dealer nearby--thanks to Hobbin for hauling it back from Colorado for me!
The paint really highlights the pretty details . . .
I put the original on/off switch back on (just for fun):
I did remember to take a "Before" picture--here it is after I took out the front panel and some other odds and ends. That front panel is going to be something interesting someday.
