And So The Painting Begins

IMG_1629 Look what was waiting for me today when I got home! I feel like the only one I know who hasn’t been painting with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. Either way I am happy to be on board and cannot wait to start painting!


Oh Happy Day!

What a wonderful Christmas gift this is. I feel like a little kid and just can’t stop thinking about all of the pieces I am going to paint. I am so looking forward to sharing with all of you all of the pieces I have been collecting over the years.

All of my favorite colors! Paris Grey, a soft grey that is so elegant, I can’t wait to use this color. Grey is my most favorite color to decorate with.  French Linen, a cool neutral khaki grey that is so earthy and relaxed. Pure White, what can I say, soft, pure & fresh. & Old White another wonderful white that I know I’m just going to love.
IMG_1679 I have always admired all of the Chalk Paint ® by Annie Sloan. I love browsing around all of the beautiful blogs showing their finished pieces. Been ooohing and aaahing over all of the different finishes and techniques and can’t wait to try these as well.

A special thank you to Robyn at Robyn Story Designs  for all of your encouragement and help! Big hugs to you!

    You are going to have a lot of fun using your new chalk paint and maybe a few laughs along the way;) Start small and get a few practise runs in before you start any of your larger pieces. Looking forward to seeing all that you paint!

      Thank you Paulina for all of the tips! I was just thinking the same thing. I will have to do a Chalk Paint® bloopers video for you all.
