Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. You've heard of this, right? If you have not; it is this paint, right, that gives you this rich, purty color AND 1. you don't have to sand, prime, or anything. Just slap it on, let it dry and distress to your heart's content. Say whaaat!
It is Le perfect for an easily distracted individual such as moi. I can slap on a coat when I get a surge of inspiration without having to do all that stupid prep work. Prep work is no fun. I reupholstered this chair that I got at Goodwill:
Close up shots!
Everyone is going OOON and OOON about chalk paint, and you know what, they should. I am sooo on that bandwagon. If you're going for the distressed look, look no further. The folding chair was done in the first color I ordered, Paris Grey (are we surprised?)
I have since ordered Aubisson Blue and Old White. Everything is getting painted. It adheres to everything. Plastic, other paint, metal, wood, veneer, toothpicks, meatballs. You name it.
I'm gonna mix and match these things like it's my job.
On house news, I haven't updated you because there's nothing really to update. Still working through the process, so we shall see!
