Rere’s a handy trick: rub tea light candle over edges of chair, wherever you want the wood to show through the paint.  Lightly remove any wax crumbs with wipes. Apply spray paint to chair in a well ventilated area.   Use moist wipes to wipe away the paint where you applied the candle wax.  This allows the piece to have exposed wood edges and gives it that antiqued look.

I always forget about this little trick.... Use candle wax before spray painting to give that worn/shabby chic look....

It's obvious that green is a favorite of Trish, but grey is pulling through as a top contender in the mix...It's seems to be as neutral as the browns, beige and tans have been for years!!! It obviously goes with all the beautiful blues from Annie Sloan, but using it with green simply shows off it's vibrance and beauty as well
