Quick Paint Projects
I love to quick paint projects. Paint is the cheapest way to transform an item and make it look fresh! I also love projects that are fast yet look so much better when changed.
So, I pulled out a can of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in my favorite color, Duck Egg and started painting. I’ve used ASCP on lots of wood projects but not on any other finishes. Thanks to my friend Nancy over at Artsy Chicks Rule and her post here I decided that I could totally paint a metal star with the ASCP.
The framed pieces are post cards of San Antonio, Texas that I bought off of ebay when my kids where babies. They are sentimental to me since my kids were born there. They were actually used and had writing on the back…pretty cool…so I just used painters tape around the glass so not to mess with the professional framing I had done.
I applied 2 coats of paint with clear and dark wax. Then finished with a light sanding with sand paper. In case you haven’t used chalk paint, it doesn’t need primer first AND it dries so fast there really is no wait time! Perfect for quick projects!
The next piece is a metal star, another nod to my Texas roots, lol.
These pieces are hanging in my downstairs bathroom where guest in our home use. There are other things I’d like to change in this room but for now I’m happy with it.
Any quick projects you’ve done lately?
Thanks for spending some time
