I have enjoyed experimenting with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint.
It's fun to paint
with no preparation needed
(except to clean the object off).
Here are a few of my recent projects:
A planting urn at a yard sale for $2
painted with Provence Chalk Paint
and coated with clear and a touch of Rugger Brown wax...
filled with boxwood cuttings.
A shelf for my teacups
was in need a lighter look.
A rough coat of Paris Gray,
followed by a waterdown splash of Old White
and some light sanding,
a clear coat of wax,
and then some Rugger's Brown wax.
I love the lighter look.
Lastly, one of these old boxes...
painted Antibes Green
and followed up with a light sanding
and the same waxes...
to hold some of my cookbooks.
Now if only cooking were this easy.
