Easily tackle any project or piece of furniture with Chalk Paint ® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan. Completely transform, refurbish and repurpose your pieces with the simple-to-use paint. The desk was painted using Annie Sloan’s clouded stippled technique. To transform the desk we used two different colors of Chalk Paint ®, Paris Grey and Old White. We went back and forth with both colors and blended them to achieve the desired look. The top of the desk has two coats of Graphite. We used Old White with the “Springtime in Paris” stencil and a black glaze with the “Paris Postage Stamp” stencil on the top of the desk. To finish the look the entire desk was finished with clear and dark soft wax. The hardware was also chalk painted with Graphite, distressed and waxed. All paint and supplies as well as workshops to learn the techniques available at Cindi Rowley Designs in Valencia. Stencils from Royal Design Studio.
Beginning Workshop Fun! We had a blast on Saturday’s workshop learning about the paint and the different textures you can create. We created three different finishes and learned about the dark and clear waxes and worked on our own pieces as well. It was a fun day! Here are some pictures of what we were working on throughout the day, not all of the samples and pieces are completely finished.
Our next beginning workshop is Saturday June 22nd from 9 am to 1 pm. We have spots available. Still offered at a reduced price of $125. Visit our site, email or give us a call!
