Not me, Jack.
And that’s exactly why I pretty much have a never-ending supply of 1970’s lamp bases. You know all the stuff you read about Annie Sloan chalk paint? Well these right here prove that whole, ‘sticks to everything’ selling point.
I painted these brass and wood lamp bases in two coats of Old White, taking great care to let them dry thoroughly in between coats, probably about two hours. I have certainly learned the hard way that if you you don’t let them dry thoroughly , the first coat of paint…….. pulls right off as you try to apply the second one 🙁
Learn from my mistakes people.
Next, I sanded each base with a fine grit sanding sponge that I’d had for a while. By this I mean that I had used it on a couple of pieces for furniture, if that makes any sense at all. It was softer than a brand new one. I sanded very carefully until each base was soothe as silk before a went back to lightly distress a few spots.
