Pretty Robin Egg Blue And Furniture Projects

I have been meaning to post how the small dresser turned out after painting it as my first project with Annie Sloans chalk paint. I had many other projects along with this one, I just wish that I would have taken more pictures!

I really love how this turned out. The robin egg blue color, Annie calls Provence. It's gorgeous. I have almost a full can left and I cannot wait to start on my next few projects for the show at the Metrolina in July.

I really love how smooth the Annie Sloan paint is to work with! The look of the paint after two coats is like fondant cake frosting! It is beautiful! It sands like a dream and polishes into a satin finish. On this dresser, I used natural Min-wax paste wax for the finishing touch.

I also used Annie Sloans "Old White" chalk paint on a vintage 1930's bed, a teacart, and two decorative mirrors from the 1920's and 1930's. Everything sold right away at the show. I was very happy about that!

I have a lot to learn about paint effects and giving pieces texture, but it sure is fun learning! ...I just found two more pieces that I need to start on soon. I will post pics! How fun :-)

I ended up painting this pretty table a wonderful rich gray and then distressed it.
