  5. Hi Liz Marie,
    I noticed that you do a lot of pieces in regular Latex paint rather than Annie Sloan.. Do you use the Annie Sloan ‘clear wax’ on latex paint? I’ve read where since latex paint is not ‘porous’ that the wax will not stick to it very well.. Have you tried this , and if so what do you think of using clear wax to latex painted furniture?.. Reason I ask this is because I was going to purchase A.S. chalk paint in Old white to paint my antique buffet and buy the clear wax for over top of it.. but I’ve read where OLD vintage furniture can bleed through the paint… so I don’t think I’ll be taking the chance of spending so much money on paint for that to happen! .. I was just going to order the wax for over top latex paint instead..

  6. I think my favorite is still the master bedroom! It’s amazing! I do love that day bed and stripe wall though. Everything is just fabulous!!!!!!

    Ps : was there ever a tutorial on that wood wall????? Cause I’m gonna need to know what you did!!!!!

    Happy New Year!

    • Hi Annie… Thank you so much for all of your kind words!! The wood tutorial is coming this week!! Sorry It has taken me so long… I hope it’s worth it when you see it ;) xx
