This creature came to me with one foot completely broken off. (Left foot in the "before" shot) After making the repair and cleaning the piece thoroughly, I was delighted to find the top in really good shape. I touched up the small scratches with General Finishes Java Gel Stain, and a few coats of GF Satin High Performance Top Coat to protect the newly freshened surface. The edges of the top and base were not as well off as the top, so I went with a color I had yet to try! Paloma is a wonderful shade of grayish-lavender on the Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan palette!! I highlighted the details on the piecrust top and legs with Old White, which I sealed with clear wax, and antiqued with dark wax.
