Disclosure: I attended a networking event sponsored by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint where I received some free products to try. This post is the result. Please see my disclosure policy for further information.
I made a little film — I did!
It was so fun to play with a camera, and my family, and some paint. It was also heaps of fun to play with some video editing software and Vimeo! And hey presto – just like that I made a film about it!
In case you missed it, here are my 6 steps to furniture-fabness!
1. Clean your step stool and give it a light sand if you need to.
2. Give it two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Napoleonic Blue. (You'll need two sample pots for this stool – dressed pine is very thirsty and soaks up the Chalk Paint despite being so thick. Otherwise you'll need to make an emergency dash to the shop to buy another one, mid-project, like I did. Bummer!)
3. Trace some circles using cups of two different sizes.
4. Paint them in two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White.
5. Finish the piece in two coats of Annie Sloan Clear Wax. (Apply these as thin coats and wait a good day or two between coats – it should not be sticky!)
6. Enjoy your stool that's been transformed from boring beige to bright blue happiness!
Have you transformed some furniture from boring beige? I'd love to hear your story – so tell us below! Feel free to link to your project if you've posted it somewhere.
