I recently posted about using Annie Sloan chalk paints to paint some furniture.
I love doing it and thought it would be good to share a few tips and things I learnt from doing it. This is very much from a beginner! I want to start trying out some more fun things with it but kept it simple to start with.
We moved house a few months ago and Elodie has a lovely room but due to the shape of it I couldn’t really figure out a way to fit a bookcase in.
I posted over a year ago about a bookcase that I bought at auction and painted for my son’s bedroom. I loved doing it and turning a well loved piece of furniture into something new. It’s looks fantastic in his room and so much nicer than a standard piece of Ikea furniture (which is what the rest of my house is!)
It was hard work though. I spent a whole day sanding, then had to prime it before 2 layers of paint.
Then I discovered Annie Sloan chalk paints.
