The Paint process -
2 light - 1 heavy coat of white emulsions to condition and prime the wood.
Serious thick scruffy coat of bright yellow gloss. I know - I know - hang on a bit!
2 thin scruffy coats of vintage cream chalk paint.
1 thin scruffy coat of gold metallic. Being a bit of a 'bling' bunny I liberally coat it all over - but you could just do the edges and be more subtle ;-)
Good old polish up with a plain wax polish to buff up the metallic shine and blend everything together - chalk paint loves a coat of wax.
Finishedand in my 'sewing' room - clever old goat!
