mismatch redo... one more week of annie sloan chalk paint giveaway

I thought I would show you this picture of two lonely, ugly mismatched pieces that I found their way together and made beautiful and matched together by using paint!
I found the top portion on craigslist, but it didn't have a bottom. :(  
But I loved the scroll work...

My husband did not want me to buy it because he thought we would never find a bottom for it.  
I begged and assured him I could make it work! 

He reluctantly loaded it in the van....
Of course that made me even more determined to find a bottom for it! 
One weekend, when I took my daughter to one of her gymnastics meets, we snooped around the local antique shops, and lo and behold, I found a piece that measured the right size!
We brought it home and I painted both the pieces to match.  
I used Annie Sloan's new color French Linen with Cream trim.  
I topped them both off with a coat of clear and dark wax.
I couldn't wait until my husband got home to show him the finished piece!
I think she looks pretty good for being a mismatch!
You can get this look too, by entering to win our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint giveaway!
