Remember this lamp stand....

I bought it at the Wrentham Country Store's At Home with White Event and showed it to you in this post almost a year ago. I said that although I just had to have it...I had no idea what to do with it.

Well that was until this weekend when I visited House at 755 and found this...

I know...I should have put a candle in the votive cup to show how pretty it looks lit - you'll have to trust me - it's looks purr-tee!

First project of the New Year

Will be to give my garden bench a makeover with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Pure White.

I'm new at this.... should I apply the wax before or after I spot distress?
