I may be late to the party, or the party may be over. I may be the last blogger to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, but I finally did. Back a few weeks, I purchased some paint...just wanted to try it on this small table I thrifted.
Then hubby found this for me...a tool trug.
Just the sample size of Duck Egg.
This is one coat and a coat of wax. I bought my wax from the hardware store...it does change the color a bit and really smells up the house! I also used a rag and not the wax brush to apply the wax. I just can't seem to follow directions. It was still a pleasing result.
I did a little distressing. The color is very nice, hard to photograph late in the day. I can't say I'm a believer. Maybe I've just painted too many pieces with my favorite Ace brand latex. There is another project and another color, but that will have to wait for another day.
My little ones will be spending some time with Auntie Penny while Grandma Elizabeth works at the florist. It's their busiest time all year. The girls will keep me busy and delight me with their happy smiles and funny antics.
This morning the birds were really singing. I guess they don't mind single digit temperatures. Maybe they just know that Spring is close... We've almost made it through the worst winter in recent memory. Maybe I just jinxed us! Well, No winter lasts forever, no Spring misses it's turn. Fingers crossed!
Enjoy this beautiful day!
