I am so excited about my very first Annie Sloan chalk paint makeover! I have seen so many fantastic furniture makeovers online and read a great deal of positive reviews that I’ve been wanting to try it out for a while, despite my hatred for painting. Our dining room setting is beautiful, but the mango wood doesn’t quite match the other wooden elements in our home, and while i am not willing to paint the entire setting, I though just painting the bench seat white would help it to tie into the room better. I have a hatred for painting, so I thought a little of Mr Darcy in the background encouraging me would make the process more enjoyable. It did!! Why thank you Mr Darcy. This was the most romantic painting project I’ve ever experienced. Here I am in action – completing the first coat. I did two coats and one coat of soft clear wax. I found the paint goes a long way and I only used about 1/3 of my 1litre tin. I am really happy with how it looks and I love that the setting doesn’t look too matchy matchy anymore. I have a couple more projects in mind for this paint, which will help me incorporate more recycled pieces into my home. This might be the very first time I have enjoyed painting.
