2016 Paint Contest featuring….our customers!

 

 

 

 

We love September! It’s a natural thing for the soul to want to nest! Mornings get cooler, days get shorter and we find ourselves inside our homes more and more.  I find my eye wandering and pondering which project I can start next!  We crave surrounding ourselves with what we love so we can enjoy the space that we call home.

This contest is now an annual contest so we can feature our customers and their creativity….and give away a few prizes too! Thanks for sharing and keep checking back! There will be more to come!

Entry #1-2 Mandy S. Great update to this cabinet using Pure White & Duck Egg Blue. Two of our favorites! Great job!

#Entry #3-4-Mandy S. Her dad had this bench originally with white paint and  a green fabric cushion.  she painted the material in duck egg blue and dry brushed duck egg blue over the white, then sanded it down to get the perfect look!

Entry #5-6 Mandy S. Found this old chair that needed some love. It is painted in Duck Egg and the fabric is painted Pure White.

Entry #7-8 Mandy S. (…once you start painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®…you keep finding more to paint!) This  shadow box project was originally white, then painted  black. Mandy then used Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg and dry brushed them. A bit and sanding and distressing and wow….they look great!

Entry 17-18 from Charlene is the amazing update to a dining room set using the Pure White Chalk Paint® and Clear Wax.  Wow! We love the contrast between the dark stained top and the Pure White! Fabulous!

Entry 21-22 What a great kitchen update! Nikki updated her kitchen cabinets using Old White Chalk Paint®. She sanded the edges a little  and then used the Artisan  Enhancements Clear Finish to seal.

Then she used French Linen on the island with dark wax to distress the edges.

Entry 23-24 Nicole finished two projects using Annie’s Sloan Chalk Paint®!

Nicole sealed the wood since it was old barn wood. Then she painted it with Primer Red and then Old White and sanded it to look distressed. We love the texture!

Entry 25-26 The second project was taking 2 thrift store nightstands and painting them with Paris Gray. Both projects were sealed with Clear Wax.  Look at the difference that Chalk Paint® can make to a piece of well worn furniture!! It’s beautiful!

Entry 42-43 Jocelyn redid this coffee table using Pure White to base the table andthen hand painted dandelions and seeds with Country Grey. She then lightly distressed and waxed. Such talent (and awesome paint!).

Entry 44-45 Another great project by Jocelyn! Using Pure White she covered the entire  headboard and then heavily distressed it. She decopauged book pages and used a 50/50 mix of Clear and Dark Wax to age and complete the project.

Entry 46-47 An desk submitted by Jocelyn turned out fantastic. She decided to leave the original top and used pure white on the bottom. Light distressing and Clear Wax complete the look.  We love the contrast of wood and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®!

Entry 48-49 Jocelyn completed an office chair using Country Grey Chalk Paint®. She recovered the chair with canvas and wrote her favorite saying using a fabric marker and heat set method!
