DIY & FURNITURE PROJECTSDiscovering Annie Sloan Chalk Paint many years ago was really opening a can of worms for me and a nightmare for old sod. Why? You may ask. I guess because knowing how durable, and easy the paint is to use; I always want to change up and paint up EVERYTHING!
Some of you may not know how durable this paint is. No priming, Yeah! No Sanding, Wonderful! And then all you need is two lovely quick coasts of your chosen colour. No VOC, No smell, and 20 mins or so later drying time per coat. After that, quick coat of wax and your down. Time to pour yourself a glass of wine, optional of course.
Ok, I know I am making it sound super easy, but it really is, and you don’t have to be a painter or crafter, honestly. You can dye fabric with her paint, go over metal, plastic and all sorts. Now, I only use Annie’s paint because of how easy it is and to be frank, I don’t want to spend a lot of time on details, I just want the results, and get on with the styling side of things.
You will see more post as I show you simple, quick makeovers for your home on a budget, from amazing painted makeovers for kitchen cupboards, flooring, and more.
Colours used in this lovely relaxing dinning room are:#Louis Blue, #Antibes Green,#Aubusson Blue,#Amsterdam Green. All yummy colours for a new Spring look.
Walls were painted with Wall Paint in Duck Egg Blue and the furniture in a range of Chalk Paint® colours.
Soft furnishings and curtains were made from #Annie Sloan Coloured Linens.
Cleaning up is simple. Just warm water for the brushes to rinse, I use fairy liquid to condition them and also to clean the wax brushes. Being water based mean you can rinse it all down the kitchen sink.
Since being back in UK, I have seen some lovely vintage cheap furniture in junk shops and car boot sales. Only problem is I don’t have a big enough workshop to paint myself silly.LOL.
