nest


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!

  3. Hi there....I wind up finding some good pieces at Good will. Could be a side table, or even a cute chair or stool. Enjoy the paint you will love it. Thanks for sharing at the newbie party.

  6. good idea to do a small project like this with AS chalk paint. I've been wanting to practice with the dark wax, so of course I'm going to steal your idea!
