I am driving my friend around the bend when we walk together, and not only because I stop every few feet to take a photo in this glorious late summer light. But add to that every piece of furniture I see for free on the street, makes me say out loud, “can I paint that.” Be it old, and decaying, falling apart, and water stained, or newish and not needed, I check it out, to see if it is a suitable candidate for my new Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. And my walking buddy cringes every time I stop..LOL.
Ever since picking up the paint at the Passionate Home in nearby Langley, I have been eyeing up my pieces of furniture to see which one of them needs a makeover. This is a little side table that I picked up in the thrift shop, there are no “before” pics sorry.
It was a uninspiring two toned brown, with shiny lacquered legs. Now it’s a peaceful antique white, shabby finished table, with a hand painted French postscript on top. The best thing about this new ASCP, is that there is no sanding. No sanding, and no priming, yes you read that right.
Ah thank you Annie Sloan for creating this amazing paint, thank you Passionate Home for being the first BC retailer stockist.
And thank you to my walking buddy for your patience…. hey, see that dresser over there, can I paint it?
