So you know howÂ I have been trying to find the perfect gray paint for my sideboard? Well, several people emailed and commented that I should look intoÂ Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.Â So I did and I was sold! Thank you to all of you for the recommendation!
Not to be confused with chalkboard paint, it’s a paint specifically made for painting furniture (and floors) and get this: there’s no need to prime or prep the surface in any way! Really! When I read that, I immediately found a distributor and placed an order.
They arrived yesterday and as you can see, the cans got all dented but no biggie; I think the paint is fine. I ordered “Paris Grey” which has a slight blue undertone (which is what I wanted):
I also ordered an “Old White” because you are supposed to be able to mix it with any of her colors:
I want to experiment with mixing to see what shades of gray I can come up with.
I also ordered the clear wax which will go over the paint to protect it:
It also got jostled and was leaking a little bit when it arrived but hopefully, the wax is okay.
So, guess what I’m doing this weekend?Â What about you? Do you have any projects planned?Â Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday with a progress report!
