Old Violet is a lovely shade of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® and one that I chose for this antique console table.
It had an old, dark wood stain and graceful lines before. Please excuse the blurry, night time, phone photo of the table before painting.
I dry brushed one coat of Old Violet over the existing finish and blended the paint with cheesecloth as I went. Dry brushing is a painting technique using very little paint on the brush and allowing the finish beneath to show through.
I rubbed off more paint along the edges to accentuate the graceful curves.
After allowing the paint to dry, I applied Annie Sloan's clear wax followed by dark wax.
