One of my creative staff members, Lori, was excited to share her project using Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. Below is her blog on her weekend project. I plan on sharing all of our work, both in the store and the things we do on our own. This paint has taken my staff and myself to new creative levels!!!!!! ENJOY! Robyn
So, I've had the opportunity to work with the FABULOUS Annie Sloan Chalk Paints at the store and during our work-shops but........I've been dying to get my hands on this paint for my personal projects. Finally, we have a wonderful stock of all colors and waxes and I had to have some!!! My wonderful husband said that I could do anything I wanted all weekend, after all, it was Mother's Day. So we went out antiquing and I found the mother-load. We stopped at Robyn Story Designs on our way home and I picked up my supply of colors and waxes and rushed home to get busy. I am excited to share my success with everyone. Above is the 'before'. At one time it was a lovely mahogany but it had a lot of damage to the finish and needed to be re-done.
Annie Sloan Arles as the base coat, Olive as a top coat and then I distressed it along the detail. I wanted the Arles and the original wood to show through. Here's a close-up
