I had to wait a couple of days because, after all, life doesn't stop just because there is a painting project waiting for me...or does it? Sooo, to introduce my first blog about chalk paint I show you this table...
After scrubbing off the dirt and grime I looked over my cans of Annie Sloan and came up with a plan. Remember when I said I was just dying to try my hands at chalk paint, well those feelings came back as I cracked open the can! Squeeeee! :)
|Can you see the crackle? I lost a bit of the color with this picture, but I was trying to get the detail of the crackle :)|
|The actual lamp post was super easy: just dry brushed it with Country grey and Duck Egg leaving the original black showing through! Easy peasy!|
|I reversed the colors on the bottom stand with the Country Grey on top of the Duck egg and obviously cracked.|
|After breaking my first choice of light shade/globe (what would you call that?) I settled on this one, which I really LOVE! Just a little BLING to add to the table, it just makes me happy!|
|I also tried this one. While I do really like it in a really simple way, I like the other one better. What do you think?|
Bling or simple?
One of my favorite things about the Bling globe is the shadows and lines it throws on the wall...
