Recently, upon meeting a new friend, she asked me if I had ever heard of this "chalk paint." Well, you know that was just music to my ears. "Annie Sloan chalk paint? Ummmmm....YES!" :)
The next thing you know I have her 6 foot tall grandfather clock in my house. This is just a regular, decorative piece she found at a home store. She never quite fell in love with it, always dreaming of an old, French or Swedish, antique clock. What I didn't know is that those nice little Swedish, antique clocks will run you about $3000. If you know me, I wasn't about to let her do that.
I turned to my old favorite color from Annie Sloan, Duck Egg Blue for help. Annie, let's cover up these roses, okay?
Once I painted, I used the clock's curves and colors underneath to distress lightly. I used a little antiquing glaze to get into the cracks and create an old world feel to it. Check it out.
She loved it. Freaked out a little and the funny thing is I left with another little piece of furniture to paint.
The Dunn Cabinet.
Have a great weekend,
