Durability of Annie Sloan paints on dining room furniture
I just purchased a really cool, older Ethan Allen dining table and chair set. My goal is to refinish the table top, and paint and glaze and/or distress the table pedestal and chairs (which have caning on the back and cool chunky legs) 2 of the chairs are "captain" or chairs with arms. The pedestal and chairs would be in a white-ish color. I have heard wonderful things about Annie Sloan paints but would like to hear more about durability in a dining room setting (think: little kids with messy fingers!) Can you scrub the piece down? Wouldn't that remove the wax, which I've heard protects the piece? I'm looking to resell the piece after its done and I'm a bit of a nit-picker for details :-) Thanks for the help!
