It sure is quiet on the home front today, well not my home front! The picture above denotes the state of my week.....a complete cluster *ahem*! The dryer broke yesterday and I am simply thankful the whole house did not go up in flames! The washer is still working thankfully, so I must wash on. That means hanging wet clothes in every corner of the house until the Kenmore man gets here. Enough about my appliance woes....how about some crafty stuff, huh?
These are my Annie Sloan chalk painted cabinets I am working on. It simply takes time and patience. What you see here is 2 to 3 coats of Napoleon Blue Chalk Paint, 1 to 2 coats of clear wax, and 1 coat of dark wax(giving them a nice aged look). Let each coat dry thoroughly before adding the next and for the love of all that is holy do not get the paint wet until after the wax has been applied. I recommend Annie Sloan's wax brush for application, but then take a clean rag and lightly buff as you go. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me and I would be happy to assist! Let the randomness continue!!
This is a neat organizing idea! I took plain clothes pins and sprayed them with chalk paint! It is a great way to label just about anything and it looks really neat!
