I would like to start out thanking all the wonderful "Crafters" who share their creations with everyone. When I post my projects, I will try and remember who and where I might have scrap-lifted the project or concept, copied a design or duplicated a project of yours. However, if I fail to mention you, please know that I am very very thankful for you sharing your creativity and inspiring me!
Who knew chalk painting furniture would be so easy!
So I have jumped on the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint wagon!! No, not chalkboard paint! This type of paint has a chalky finish and you can paint just about anything with it. The best part of all is that there is no prep work prior to using it. You can paint right over the existing finish without sanding or striping! I can hear you now...No Way! After painting all you do is seal it with a light coat of wax (clear and/or dark) and it is good to go! Here are the projects I have done so far.....
Purchased this bedroom dresser off of Craigslist and transformed into our TV console. The color is burgundy with both clear and dark wax.
My next project was my kitchen table. The top of the table is not chalk paint but General Finishes Gel Stain. I lightly sanded the top of the table before applying the gel stain. The chalk paint color is coco with both clear and dark waxes.
Thanks for looking and I would love to hear your thoughts.
Got to run.........off to look for more furniture to paint!!
