Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan

Hello Glamouristas! This week-end on Glamourissime, we share a capsule about the  Chalk Paint.

It’s a water-based paint that can be applied directly to most surfaces without sanding or priming.

Chalk Paints allows us to transform old furniture, floors or cute decorative treasures in a few strokes.

And yes, it basically covers almost every materials: wood, plastic, stone, brick, concrete or metal!!  

The best part about this is that we don't even need a big quantity to make an easy and quick make-over.

For us, the "crush story" started in October at the opening of the Piorra House store in Montreal.

A pleasant meeting with Annie Sloan, a confirmed expert in decorative painting.

We’re talking about 40 years of experience, 23 books on different application techniques, in short we've met a veteran.

It's in a relaxed atmosphere that we saw the paint-guru in action. Armed with her stylish glasses,

a brush and a cloth she casually takes us on a friendly adventure where everything is possible.

Can you believe that it even dyes fabric? How amazing is that!

Ocus Pocus and there it is: the Old White shade covers perfectly my two pieces. It suits the little stool like a glove.

I'm pretty happy with the results. I decide to apply a coat of Country Grey to see what happens.

After all, I'm following the advice of Annie Sloan: "let the furniture talk to you".

So I'm letting my stool and my mirror talk. Mirror, Mirror who is the fairest of them all?

I feel so artistic all of a sudden. Let's age this mirror. Yes it spoke to me!

A little bit of waxing, sanding and one last touch of wax.

And Tadaaaaammm!
