I NEED to get my hands on some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Don’t you agree? I have the painting bug and I keep reading post after post about how crazy freaking awesome this stuff is and how easy it is to work with. I NEED it.
And I even have the perfect, actually two perfect pieces for it. Ok, I lied, I have like 5 pieces that are just screaming cover me in chalk paint, please!
I have a dresser for our bedroom that I don’t have a picture of but it would be awesome in French Linen or Paris Grey. I’m leaning toward Paris Grey since we have cool blues and grays in the room already. Love!
Or our kitchen island (maybe the Provence/Old White combination or maybe just White?):
This one really needs help in the paint department. It has smudges of some leftover white paint from a previous owner and it doesn’t really go with the other wood in the room. I was thinking Paris Gray or French Linen? I love the little legs at the bottom and I’m definitely going to replace the hardware. Ignore the green paint on the wall, it might be going (sad, tear).
And finally, my favorite blue hutch. I love this piece and I love that it’s blue. But it totally doesn’t go with our walls (I know, paint the walls) and it’s really helping me to lean in a different direction. I love the idea of bringing blue and green together in this space but not in the blue piece of furniture up against a green wall kind of way. I’m thinking about covering the back of the hutch in burlap and painting the non-blue portions Old White. The only thing I don’t love about the hutch is the light wood and I think this will solve my problem. Or I could paint all of the blue in French Linen or Paris Gray. I don’t know if I would be sad about losing the blue though. What do you think? Can you tell I love Annie Sloan’s grays? I promise I won’t paint every piece in gray…
Minor problem in procuring this paint, no one near me carries it. Gah! I kind of want to look at the paint in person (maybe on a chart or on an actual piece) before I jump into spending a pretty penny on a little can of it. And is one little can enough for one piece of furniture, like a dresser? Have any of you ordered this paint and had any luck with it? What about waxes?
I guess for now I’m going to live vicariously through other people’s experiences with the beauty that is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Can you tell I’ve been spending some time Googling finished products in these colors? Gorgeous!
Primitive and Proper painted this hutch Paris Gray, beautiful!
Shabby Coast Cottage painted these floors (using the same pattern as in our kitchen!) in Old White and Paris Gray. This is stunning but I wonder how that would hold up with kids and indoor riding toys…
Centsational Girl painted an accent table Old White and I’m loving this look. I think it would work well for our breakfast table.
Shades of Amber painted this dresser in French Linen, oo-la-la! I need this!
Are you crushing on this paint as much as I am? Maybe we should start a bloggy lottery pool so we can all win and buy some 🙂
