postheadericon Chalk It Up!!

These are the color sample boards for the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on the studio wall....at least the 1st 18 of them!  I am waiting to get the other 6 up on the wall.  I found these frames at Michaels for cheap...thought it was a great way to show the colors and with the wax as well.

 An Annie Sloan Chalk Paint sample board done in Old White with a stencil done in the Rustic Wax....nothin but paint and wax!

Table - before - It had massive water damage and we took the belt sander to it and smoothed out the top the best we could.....pressboard - yuck!

This is the top of the table after painting with the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and I added a bit of bling to it around the edges with some gold leafing from Caromal Colours.  I love how the Chalk Paint crackles almost immediately when you dry it with a hair dryer.  
Now my hubby says he wishes the other furniture in the barn would start talking to me since I told him a piece has to "speak" to me before I start painting it!   Wait till you see what I scored from my cabinet maker friend!  Alas, he is moving to Oregon, but almost GAVE me two beautiful antique buffets which he already stripped.  Those are going to have to wait until after the 3 Speckled Hens show before I tackle those. In the meantime, I have lots of smaller projects needing my attention in addition to a Distressed 4 Success workshop on May 14th....I have a seat left if you are interested!
