OK..I did it..not a large project, but my very first attempt at using the Annie Sloan Chalk paint.
I have a mirror that I have had since childhood. It was attached to an antique vanity that my dad found. He
painted it PINK..Yes, my sister and I were definitely in the pink phase back then..you know the days of the
Midnight in Paris perfume (dating myself again!)..The vanity is long gone, but I held on to that mirror. It
has been with me on 7 moves. Used it in just 2 of my homes (put a walnut stain over it) and it found it’s way to
the attic on the other moves. So, my hubby took it out of the attic and I proceeded to give it new life again!
The mirror…I stained it many, many years ago with a walnut stain (was pink)..Don’t you just love the reflection in the mirror?
Using ASCP “Old White”
Two coats later…
Taking a coffee break while I wait for the paint to dry…
In the meantime, I grabbed an old wooden pineapple and thought, hmmm, wonder how the paint will look on the pineapple and an old urn. Notice the golfers in the background? A nice day..
So here’s the pineapple/urn transformation..Really like it much better than the old version!
I used the fine sandpaper to distress the frame…
Another view…so that is my first try at the Annie Sloan Chalk paint..A very small project. But I did it!
I will show the total reveal when I do my first attempt at a larger piece of furniture. I am taking the
leap and painting a late 1800′s Wisconsin slider table…Hoping to combine the two pieces together and
placing it in another area…Stay tuned!..
