That is the name of the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that I am using to paint a table that I am going to have in my Art Fair Booth.

This is the table that I am going to paint. I love the little drop ends. This was my Mother-in-Laws table and it has many worn spots and rings on the top. It needed some love.

Here are the worn spots to show that it did need some attention.

I have the drawer out and the drawer pulls off for easy painting.

I have to tell you that it was very easy paint to use. The only preparation that is needed on the furniture is to clean it with a mild soap. No sanding, no stripping, it was great. The complete first coat of paint gets applied, then a watered down second coat gets applied after the first coat drys. Then when the second coat is dry a coat of clear wax was applied, very easy to do. I would suggest finding YouTube videos to help understand the best way to apply the wax. It was helpful for me. This picture was right after the first coat was applied. The lines of the brush disappear when it drys.

Here is my finished table and I really, really like it! It is a fun color that will add interest to my booth. I distressed the edges a little bit also. I have a couple of furniture pieces from my Mother that have rings and spots on the top and I believe I will paint those also, I am thinking of a distressed white. That’s a little bit down the road though. There are other chalk paints out on the market and I don’t know how well they work but I recommend Annie Sloan and there are such yummy colors. Let me know what you think, did you like my color? Thanks for stopping.
