Just over a month ago I purchased my first quart of Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan. As much as I wanted to jump in with both feet and order a quart of each of the colors I had been admiring, I just didn't have the funds in my paint budget to allow it! After a whole lot of perusing Chalk Paint® related blog posts and scouring photos on Pinterest, I decided to start with a quart of Old White, 2 sample pots, one of Duck Egg Blue and one of Paris Grey and a can of both the clear and dark waxes.
Every Chalk Paint® "review" I had read stated that this one quart of paint would cover a whole slew of projects, but exactly how many projects constitutes a whole slew? That's what I wanted to know! Now, having scraped the bottom of my quart of Old White, each of the sample pots and the clear wax, I am prepared to show you just how many projects my first can of chalk paint made over!
This lovely frame received 2 coats of a mixture of Duck Egg and Old White followed by clear and dark waxes.
A 24" x 36" antique mirror was made over with two coats of Old White and waxed with both clear and dark waxes.
My antique vanity/cabinet was first painted with one coat of Old White, followed by a Duck Egg Blue/Old White mixture and sealed with both clear and dark waxes.
Prior to purchasing my chalk paint, I had applied a coat of creamy white latex paint to this end table. Just one coat of my Old White/Paris Grey mix completed the job. I then applied both clear and dark waxes.
My over sized oak dresser (now mantle!) mirror was complete after 2 coats of Paris Grey, followed by clear and dark waxes.
Both chair and table shown here were previously painted white and therefore only needed the one coat of Paris Grey mixed with a bit of Old White and followed with clear and dark wax.
This is another little piece that was given a coat of creamy white latex paint before it's makeover in Duck Egg Blue with clear and dark wax.
And this is where I started scraping the bottom of those cans! The desk portion was completed. It had received two coats of Old White, clear and dark wax all over and multiple coats of clear wax on the desk top. I had just about finished the first coat of paint on the hutch top when the well ran dry! I have a whole lot of the dark wax left, even though I've used it on almost all of these projects, plus several more!
Thank you so much for your sweet visit! I had a fabulous time out junking with Denise of Pink Postcard today and can't wait to share my finds with you all very soon!
Have a wonderful weekend, my Friends!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
