I will admit I tried several different touches, such as dry brushing with some french gray chalk paint and lightly buffing on some dark Annie Sloan wax. I'm sure others could have pulled it off, but the effect I made just looked like crap, so I covered it up with the white again and called it good enuf for now. I have a feeling I'm going to end up with a lot of white finishes around here by the time that garage is cleaned out.

From The Garage: No. 4 Garlic Bowl
The saga of my pursuit of a clean garage continues despite the heat. I unboxed this little bowl that I bought sometime back at a Salvation Army thrift store. I hated the color, but liked the shape. The glaze is a shiny grayish white, which had no correlation to the dull terra-cotta finish on the garlic bulbs and on the bottom.
