I always feel like
because I have so many times before.
(bought my first MUM of the season)
So……today, I was thinking more about our backyard retreat and all the color I want to add.
I have a can of Annie Sloan Provence chalk paint that I have been dying to dig into.
Remember I mentioned I want a Spanish flair out on our new area. I want to totally bring the inside out.
It really was so simple to paint the terra cotta.
The Annie sloan chalk paint went on like butter.
Dried fast as usual. I have so many pretty stencils on hand I thought I would stencil a design on the pot as well.
I was achieving a weathered old look…
so I sanded the heck out of it.
the sanding is the toughest part of these jobs!
I sweat like a dickens!
The process was simple. I painted two coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint. I used duck egg blue color.
Let that completely dry for a few hours and then did my stencil work.
and again, as I mentioned sanded the heck out of it. You can use some polyurethane to protect your masterpiece. I did not. I wanted it to get weathered and chippy over time.
In fact from what I am told about Annie’s paint, that using it for outdoor projects is just as wonderful. It will take on a more weathered effect over time.
This is the stencil and paint I used..
