Have I mentioned I LOVE CHALK PAINTING!!!!!!
I am in love with chalk painting.. I love the results of it..the feel of it.. the look of it..the ease of it! I love it all…
and I can make any color that I desire! I don’t have to confine my choices to the commercial stuff out there that cost an arm and a leg..I make my own.. I have posted the recipe in a previous post on other pieces of furniture I have done..go here to view recipe:…https://frombeverlysfrontporch.wordpress.com/2012/09/18/chalk-painting-on-furniture
The above picture is of my latest creation..here is what it looked like before I painted it..
I bought this at a boot sale when I lived in England.. I think I gave maybe 3 pounds for it..that would be around $6.oo here.. I liked the stand..but the plain wood didn’t really do anything for me.. so I painted it.. I love the results..
I loved it so much I painted these white shelves to use along with it.. I love the pale yellow..just enough of color to POP in the room…
and here are the finished shelves!
I am here to tell you I am not a painter by any stretch of the imagination! But I can Chalk Paint.. so..even if you don’t paint…try this..I think you will love it…
this is what I did…I mixed my paint with the unsanded grout…a little water..and I painted away on my pieces…I let it dry…and then I distressed my piece..added wax…let cure 24 hours..and then I buffed my piece..and it is smooth as a baby’s butt!! I love it!!!!
So give it a try…come on..its easy I am telling you..give me a shout if you have any questions..and I will try my best to help!
