SHABBY CHIC PAINT LAYERING - distressing white over green






I took an old record storage table and did a 2 color paint layering to get a fun shabby chic finish.





The original table was stained in a dark finish, that is the best
 possible base for really great looking distressed pieces. The 
first color I applied on that was a soft Spanish moss green,
 the second coat was a bright white. Both paints were Annie 
Sloan Chalk Paint, but the green was kitchen counter mix.


I find if I start to distress a layered paint project soon after 
drying, the colors seem to come off together and too quickly
 with too much of the bottom layer not staying put, so I leave
 the paint to really set up and dry for a few days so the first 
layer doesn't sand away as quickly.

******************************************************



I've had several people talk to me about the same issues, so it
 does seem to be a common issue. 1 alternative is to wax the first coat before applying the second color, this would
 ensure it would hold better when sanding.
