I'd read that you could use this paint straight away without previously preparing the item you were going to paint. Of course, I thought it was, perhaps, too good to be true! But - it is true - I just got the paintbrush out and started.
The paint went on like a dream, and you can water it down if it starts to get a bit thick. There's no nasty smell and you can wash your brush in soapy water once you have finished.
After allowing the paint to dry (which doesn't take long), I gave the table a rub down with Annie Sloan Soft Wax, which again is so easy to use. This gives a protective finish to the table.
Then the good part - deciding what to put on the table!
I got my paint from Iconic Home in Troon - a lovely little shop and well worth a visit if you are in the area.
My next challenge is my dining table and six chairs! Phew, I'm going to be busy!
