A Lesson in Chalk Paint

Georgia and I have been experimenting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on a few projects and wanted to share our thoughts. First of all, Chalk Paint (any brand) claims that you do not have to sand or prime furniture before applying the paint. Huge bonus for the impatient! The paint is somewhat expensive but it covers well so you may not need as much as you think. We especially love the colors provided by Annie Sloan and the variety of textures that you can achieve with the waxes and finishes.

Today, we want to show you a up-cycle project that didn’t quite make the mark.

Georgia purchased this very inexpensive red table at a local auction for $15.

She had purchased the Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint for another project and decided that this pretty little thing screamed Duck Egg Blue. At the auction, we noticed the damage and/or water rings on the top of the table. We wondered if the Chalk Paint would cover it without primer? Worth a shot.

A Craft Party – Photo Canvas

In order to celebrate our new blog, I decided to host a small craft party with a few of my girlfriends. For Christmas, I made several photo canvases that were all over Pinterest and received rave reviews from the recipients. This project is perfect for a small craft party, all supplies are easily available, the total project costs around $20 each and most importantly, any mistake is fixable!
