Awhile back I decided to try my hand at Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I found an old brown table and slapped on some paint.
It covered well, no prepping, but I wasn't that thrilled with the results.
It's a very flat paint and showed a lot of brushstrokes.
I decided to give it another try.
This old chair has seen better days.
I chose Paris Grey.
This time I did some sanding after.
I started sanding to remove drips and brushstrokes, but then one thing led to another, and I started sanding to bring out the lines of the peice.
I've never been a fan of distressing furniture, but after I saw the results, I kept on sanding. I was really starting to enjoy myself at that point.
The distressing brought depth and dimension to the peice.
Then I used a natural bristle brush to apply wax and then buffed it into the surface with a soft cloth.
I am changing my mind about things.
Both about the paint, and about the sanding.
|My walls are grey, so I put the chair up against a white bookshelf to see the color|
I'm already working on another peice, a LARGE one, that I'm pretty excited about.
You can officially add me to the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint fan club. Is there one?
