I decided to shabbify it ...............yes in my vocabulary, that is most definitely a word
Much like Sprainting is ( spray painting ) I'm working on creating my own dictionary also.
A quick dry brushing of Annie Sloan Pure White did the trick.
There is no special way to do this - other than to go lightly in some areas, thicker in others..............
although where ever there is " relief " work - always go lightly to leave the darker color showing.........
That's it - probably took 10 minutes to do this makeover!
A little tip - I don't bother taping windows or mirrors - I simply use a razor tool to scrape paint off once I'm finished - eliminates any and all prep time that way..............and the scraping ( especially with chalk paint )
is effortless really.
To create " wear " I simply wet a scott towel - and rubbed a little..................
I placed it in front of the flreplace doors - since I choose to believe there will be no use for it for another 8 months
I also tried it with different candles - and not sure which way I prefer it
leaning towards the books I think.

To create a Shabby Chic look with the use of white paint -
eg - I shabbified a mirror today.
Shabbified, Shabbifying - Shabbify
Not too shabby, right?
Have a great Sunday all,
P.S. - just so you know how " blonde " I can be sometimes -
I posted this - and then went onto google reader to catch up on some other's posts and as I'm scrolling down
I come across a site - that reads SHABBIFY - THE DEFINITION
and I thought - Well!!! What are the chances of that?
Took me a moment before I realized it was mine..................
