Lisa’s ad­vice on a weath­ered look: • The sur­face to be painted will de­ter­mine the type of prepa­ra­tion re­quired. With An­nie Sloan paint, lit­tle to no prepa­ra­tion is nec­es­sary. • I love sand­ing painted sur­faces and then ap­ply­ing metal­lic paint (gold, sil­ver and bronze) to high­light or em­pha­sise cer­tain ar­eas. I also like com­bin­ing dif­fer­ent prod­ucts – be pre­pared for the un­ex­pected and have fun be­ing cre­ative! • There are dif­fer­ent ways to achieve a weath­ered aes­thetic. I de­lib­er­ately painted Ca­rina’s bath­room van­ity to look more rus­tic and less pol­ished, and in those ar­eas that I wanted to em­pha­sise, the paint was wiped off with a rag be­fore it was com­pletely dry.
