Fixing Mistakes

I painted a little table yellow.  Then I waxed it with clear wax. Then I put dark wax on it and OH NO it was the worst!  But I did a little reading and found that you can remove Annie Sloan dark wax by putting clear wax on top and wiping it off.  It was labor intensive to do this but it gave me some time to think. Most mistakes can be fixed but the first step in fixing a mistake is admitting you made one. The picture shows this as being a lemony yellow but it's not, it's Annie Sloan Arles yellow.

You can fix alot of mistakes. I think that is the real secret of learning. Not making the mistake, but figuring out how to correct it. It takes patience, determination, and having the time to evaluatate what is wrong and want to finish what you started. the table is pretty.
