Annie Sloan Chalk Paint...At this point, it's a love hate thing..

The truth is I am having a love hate relationship with my new chalk paint. From what I's the rage. The HOT thing, it's IN, it's NOW....I'm not sure why.

Whenever I think "OH I don't like that" I remember something Dean always says..."if I don't like it, it doesn't mean it's not good, it just means I don't understand it. :0/

HUMMM. Well, I still don't understand chalk paint. But I won't give up. I will continue to try new techniques. Because as I have witnessed, the plusses...are really great plusses. You can paint over anything. YEP anything. The paint takes. What does this mean..for someone who spends the majority of her days sanding and preping before means less work. So this is great! But the colors are limited to 25 or so. And they don't make Linen White, Old White is close...but different. And everyone just loves my Linen White.

So I need to learn new techniques, that work with the differences in this paint.It's hard. I am struggling.

As I continue to produce one of a kind custom orders for my very fabulous and loyal customers (who I secretly think are trying oh so hard to make sure I don't go under and become homeless) in Ben Moore linen White I search for inspiration to create....something...well different.

Stop by the shop and check out the pieces in my window. Let me know what you think.

Cause at this point I am just not sure if I've nailed it.

  1. I think you've nailed it. You always do. See you tomorrow night. We will be there as soon as we drop off the kiddos, around 6:15! Excited to shop, too!
