French Linen and Gold Sideboard Transformation – Before and After

Today’s before and after is this fantastic vintage sideboard that was last week’s favorite find.  It is full of detail that was just hiding in that dark finish!

My client recently downsized to a condo that is filled with great light.  She is in the process of redoing her interior to reflect her new space.  This means lighter and brighter! more here!

Painted Linoleum Floor with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Lacquer

I’m done and sharing my finished powder room floor!  It has been painted in Annie Sloan chalk paint.  I used Country Grey as a base color and then a coat of Coco was applied.  My linoleum floor (like a lot of older linoleum floors) has a textured finish and I used that to my advantage.  I mixed Old White into the Coco to create a lighter color that I dry brushed on top.  It created the look of real stone and I love it! more here!

Layers of Goodness with Annie Sloan Washes – Sneak Peek

I’m hard at work on a piece in my garage.  Do you recognize it as one of my favorite finds?  I hope to share it with you all tomorrow.  Until then, here is a sneak peek.  The technique is layer upon layer of Annie Sloan chalk paint in different washes. 

Layers of goodness!

I’m also working on figuring out what sealer to apply to my powder room floor and should have an answer soon!  Have a great “hump day”! more here!

At over 26,000 views, one of my most watched YouTube tutorials is on how to paint over laminate with Annie Sloan chalk paint.

Since a lot of people are interested in this topic, I’m sharing a post that I originally published September 2014.

Paint Color Highlight – Annie Sloan Old Ochre with a Wash of Old White

This week, I’m sharing one of my all time color combo favorites – Annie Sloan Old Ochre with a wash of Old White.

Here is the Chest on Chest dresser. The entire piece was painted in Old Ochre and sanded with a 220 grit sandpaper to create a smooth surface.  Then a wash of Old White was applied and it was sealed with Annie Sloan clear wax.  I hope you can all see the Old Ochre peeking out underneath the wash of Old White. more here!

White Desk 2

I happened upon a group of french desks that had originally been in an old hotel that closed.  I grabbed a few and brought them home (smug with happiness).  They were lovely!

Here are the before pics of the shape they were in. I think it is fun to see the different looks paint can create.  In this case, Annie Sloan Old White, Old Ochre, Provence and Paris Grey. more here!
