After many months of waiting,
I discovered that Annie Sloan Chalk Paints
are now sold in Australia!
I ordered a beginner's bundle
from here on Friday,
And look at what just arrived on my doorstep!
Much faster than I expected.
I can't wait to start painting.
These are the main candidates
for a chalk paint makeover:
our dresser by the dining table,
currently a honey pine colour,
still in good condition but
I think a painted piece would
make for a calmer living room.
This will be painted in Old White.
I'm planning to get some pewter knobs
and distress it a little.
The hutch in my craft room
was always going to be painted.
I've just been waiting for the paint!
This was an ebay purchase
with help from Linda.
I think this will be painted in Duck Egg Blue
and I have some fun knobs already to use on this.
First we need to work on the little
doors at the top, they are a bit tight
and need to be cut down a little.
The bundle above cost a small fortune,
as do all craft supplies here in Australia.
But from all I read, it's worth it
in the savings on time and products
normally used for preparation,
not to mention in the quality
of the finished job.
on these two projects that I've been
dreaming about for so long.
In the meantime, I have a few little
projects to do first
to try out the paints.
