Today I have been playing with Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint on an old dining chair. I have six odd chairs that I have bought on ebay and at bootsales over the last year and I am finally getting round to painting them. I love the idea that they will all be different styles but will be the same colour….I love things that don’t match!
I decided to start with one of the dark wood ones as I knew I would see the biggest difference for all my effort lol. It says on the tin that you don’t need to sand your furniture first…I sanded mine a little as this chair had the odd sticker on the seat. I will also have to sand the one on the far right as the paint is peeling in a lot of places.
I then applied my first coat. It doesn’t look anything special yet and I won’t be able to resist sanding it lightly before the second coat.
I also bought the clear Soft Wax by Annie Sloan and the brush recommended for applying it. I know I could have used a rag but I think this will be easier for those harder to reach places…will let you know how I get on.
