I dove in…….
I finally made the plunge into Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint.
And when I dove……..
I was soaked………….
It is like 747 degree’s here today….
So, when I say, I took the plunge.
I literally did.
Isn’t that disgusting?
I have been putting off painting for awhile because it is soooooo stinking hot outside…..
But my garage is driving me crazy!
So……I decided to ignore the fact that my pores were literally leaking and pull out my chalk paint and get busy.
Am I grossing you out?
Because I never tell anyone stuff like that.
I never even really sweat.
But today…..I poured…..
Because it was SO stinking hot!
All of that, to get to this…….
Please excuse the fact that my camera wouldn’t stop clouding trying to adjust to the Sahara Desert temperatures.
Ok…I will hush.
This is a Craigslist find.
Came with another bench and table.
I am going to experiment with each piece differently.
Yep, I am.
The place where I picked up my Annie Sloan Chalk paint also consigns pieces of furniture.
So, they will go there to live, soon…….
Unless, they reject them.
I hope they don’t.
I would be so embarrassed.
What if they do?
I didn’t think of that.
Want to see the after?
Check yes or check no if you like…..
Ok, nowhere to check….so just say you like it…..
I have quite a few pieces that I am playing around with….
So, I will give you my thoughts on chalk paint later this week.
Another before pic, since you didn’t ask…….
What do you think?
Am I the last one on the Annie Sloan Chalk paint train?
Also, when people say that they can show you how to make your own “chalk paint”…..do they mean this kind….or the chalkboard kind?
Are they the same?
Help me people!
Like the transformation?
Can’t wait to hear!
Wait until you see some of the fun stuff I have been up to!
Some of them….
I think they may now be my favorites!
