I DID it.
I bit the bullet and ordered some CHALK PAINT.
After suffering minor sticker shock, the excitement kicked in.
I can NOT WAIT until it gets here!
It has to be delivered since I don't live near the stockist, hence the shipping and
handling charge was part of the sticker shock.
Nonetheless, it should be here by the weekend.
I don't think I have ever been so excited to see the UPS truck.
So you know what I'll be doing this weekend.
Cracking those cans and gettin' busy!
I found a couple pieces last weekend just screaming for some Annie Sloan Chalkpaint.
The prep work is in progress, I just need to finish fixing that wee little whole on the desk you see in the back, it has one coat of wood filler in this shot. Once it dries I need to prime over it. I have read you don't need to prime or sand before you use this paint but the top of this desk is actually a laminate and I wanted to make sure the paint had something to stick to. I'll let you know how it goes. It could be a disaster. But I'm sure I'll have fun trying!
