I haven't taken on any big projects since I completed the desk and dresser in my last post. My blood pressure has been really high the last couple of weeks so I have been taking it easy.
I can't just sit around and do nothing all day, so I found a few little projects to keep me busy.
If you paint with Anne Sloan chalk paint you know that you can paint almost anything with it.
I have not found anything that it can not improve.
Anne Sloan pure white chalk paint gives these brass candle holders
and dollar store picture frame a new look
A fabulous new look
Does this gives you some idea of what to do with all of those brass candle stick holders you pass by in the thrift store, turn brass into class
This candle holder was at the dollar store and it is plastic, would you have guessed that ?
Anne Sloan chalk paint makes it look incredible
And the thrift stores are full of these old wooden jewelry boxes
You probably pass them up because they are outdated
And the felt inside of them is usually discoloured
but Anne Sloan can paint that too
And look how cute they look painted
Painted with Anne Sloan pure white and Antoinette
And slightly distressed
And you may have seen glass bottles painted with chalk paint
All three of these are liquor bottles
The front one is a crown royal bottle, isn't it gorgeous painted
This cute little tin was ugly in brass but looks cute in chalk paint
All of these items except the liquor bottles were only a few dollars
I love the way white looks but you can use any colour of Anne Sloan
Experiment and have fun
Don't pass up those thrift store finds anymore
I look at everything so different now that I have become an upcycler
You see something you like but don't like the colour
paint it paint paint it
Want to change the look of your room but your on a low budget
shop at thrift stores and paint it paint paint it
Thank you Anne Sloan
I don't know what I would have done if I had not discovered your paint
Would love to hear how chalk paint has inspired you
Do you do more than paint furniture with it?
would love to hear about your projects
I am hoping to get back to bigger projects soon but in the meantime
I am enjoying playing with my thrift store finds
hope everyone is having an amazing week
happy picking happy painting
