Yesterday I was out in the yard taking pictures of a few of my vintage suitcases
when my mail lady pulled up with my box of chalk paint!!! I’ve heard so many good things about this paint and I just couldn’t wait to crack open my own can of it and get to work!
I ordered my paint from Kelly over at Stylish Patina and she was great to work with. There was a delay in my shipping so she sent me a few paint brushes that I was thrilled about!
Last week I blogged about the piece I planed to paint and what color I wanted to try first (Henrietta). For a $36 can of paint, any normal person would have chose a neutral color, but you know me
Anywho….Here is the vintage desk in all of its before beauty
Let me tell you, I've painted a few pieces of vintage furniture, but this piece here had me questioning myself when I pulled out the paint. Then I reminded myself that it would still be the same piece of furniture after the paint!
What I love about this paint is how thick it is and how I don’t have to sand or prime before I paint. The above image is after one brushed on coat of paint!
I used this brush the entire time and it it took me about an hour to finish the desk! AND… I didn’t use nowhere near half the quart!
Wanna see the finished desk?!
