Annie Sloan Chalk Paint........I love it!
I had been looking for quite some time for the perfect piece to replace this buffet. Nothing was wrong with the buffet, I just wanted something that had some more character. I sold this piece on craigslist and went on a hunt.
I knew exactly what I wanted which made it even harder to find. I scoured many antiques stores and flea markets and did not see what I was looking for. Then one day My sister and I had spent many hours at the flea market and again I did not find what I was looking for. We were heading out and decided to take one more quick look and there I saw it! This beautiful buffet!! I knew this was the one!!
I had other plans for this little beauty. I wanted to paint it blue. The wood is absolutely perfect, but I also knew I did not want a solid wood piece in that space.
In comes Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I was so excited to try the color Provence. It was exactly the color I had in mind when I pictured my new buffet.
One of the things I love about this paint is I can do it anywhere. It does not have an odor and does not drip so I can paint in the middle of my kitchen! There is also no sanding or priming so there is little mess.
I used the paint brush from Annie Sloan to paint this piece. It was only a few dollars and it washes well and can be reused many times.
I removed the hardware before I painted but decided to clean it up and use it again. It looked like it belonged there, which it did!
Here it is when completed. :)
It is exactly what I wanted for that space. The buffet was $90.00 and the chalk paint was about $35.00. I have used the Provence color on several other pieces and I still have half a can left. It goes a long way so the $35.00 is well worth it!
Thanks for looking! Enjoy your Sunday!
