I saw Cindy was having a painted furniture party and I thought I would put a quick post together of some projects I have done this past year.
I have a lot of new readers that may never have seen them, so why not show you in one post.
First off, let me tell you, I was, and hopefully still known as the “spray paint queen”.
Love me some spray paint. However, since Annie Sloan chalk paint has been exposed, I have put down the can for now and moved on to bigger better things. No offense Krylon, but you have nothing on Annie.
I started with our guest room furniture:
It was black, and I used this pretty duck egg blue…
The can lasted forever, and I went on to paint some more….
This is an end table in our master bedroom…was a very dark espresso color originally.
The blue did not stop there, it went on and on..
Then I was given a can of cream for hosting a giveaway..and decided I would totally transform our bedroom furniture, it was a risk and a lot of work, but the end result was so worth it.
Annie Sloan paint continued to make her way in our home…
And I started to do little projects..
I realized you could paint just about anything with it..no sanding, no priming…
This little table was $1.50 from Goodwill, the paint gave it a cute new life…in the meantime,
lots of little things have received a new fresh coat of paint.
Now don’t get me wrong, I still do love to use regular paint and stencils…and always will…
More paint and stencil love….
|These bar stools were fun, and the best part is COUNTRY WOMAN MAGAZINE loved them too.
and for the record I am not getting paid to promote Annie Sloan paint, I am just giving a personal opinion on how much I have enjoyed working with it.
Spray paint, will always be my friend, and my first love, you just never forget….
It sure has been fun sharing some painted furniture projects with you.
