This is Flo. She's a sassy gal. A gum-snapping, grit-kissing kind of Flo from Mel's Diner. If you are too young to know what I am talking about, please just smile and nod.
I have heard the whispers of Annie Sloan's new color, Florence for some time now. It seemed like it was months away. It was a great surprise when I heard that it was available. Right now. Yay for me!
It is quite a color. Not quite as shocking as ASCP Provence was to me the first time, but pretty bold.
I had just purchased a few pieces at a thrift store and was dying to try this color. I couldn't quite figure out which one to start with. I didn't quite have the nerve to paint this lovely Frenchy piece, even though I tried, I quickly wiped it off. I was skeert.
I also bought this smallish table, that somehow I have no before picture of. This one is before the stencil happened.
I wanted to add a little fun, so I stenciled a harlequin pattern in a dark gold to the top. After distressing,
I went straight to dark wax and think its yummy!
