I found this pretty pie crust table which was top coated in "I don't know what"....some super glossy but easily removable stuff.
Me's got some pretty hands, huh? And two hair ties on wrist in case one just isn't enough. I took a small paint scraper to it and it literally just peeled right off. See those little flecks on my arm?
That's about as good of a before pic as it's going to get. Picture pretty pie crust table with shiny, easily, yay me, scrape away crap on it. Now, let's fast forward....
A couple of coats of ASCP in Old White which I'm still skeptical about. Mostly about price.....is it really worth it? I will say this though, this piece distressed beautifully and waxed amazingly to a super smooth finish. Will I use it for everything I paint? No, I think you can acheive a beautiful finish with latex too. If I'm going to distress then ASCP would probably be my first choice.
It looked a little plain when I was finished so I used a French stencil to give it a little something extra. I bought this one and a couple of others here...
Tell her I sent ya, maybe I'll get a freebie :) After all, I'm the cheap Mom!
Happy Tuesday, Sue
