I recently purchased Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for the first time. I'm looking for a piece of furniture to use it on, but haven't found one yet. (Where do people find all the ugly ducklings that they turn into beautiful swans?) Anyway, I was anxious to try out the paint on something small and easy. I painted this scrap piece of lumber with Country Grey. I used some foam letter stamps and brown craft paint to stamp the letters. Once that dried, I sanded roughly. Finally, I used a little of the dark wax. I added a bird and nest that I had purchased at Michael's. I can't wait to try something bigger!
