I have a new found love in my life, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It can transform a tired looking piece of furniture into something lovely, a mismatched pot into something that really works, an outdated kitchen into a fresh new one or a fabric cushion into something gorgeous (yes, you can paint it on fabric too).
I’d never used it before, nor painted any furniture for that matter, but you don’t need to be an expert to use it, you just paint it on. The best thing about it is you don’t have to do any prep beforehand!
I thought I’d share with you my first transformation using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. It’s not perfect, but the aim with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is that it’s not about making something look perfect, you’re trying to achieve a shabby, worn look.
The Pot Makeover
|This gorgeous pot of mine worked perfectly in our old modern house, but not so much in our old workers cottage.|
