January 14th 2015 Painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paints from Llandeilo! January 14, 2015




Being that it’s winter and it’s cold and damp it’s time to do something in the house!  So off to the newish shop in Llandeilo :     http://www.thelittlewelshdresser.com   

The shop is lovely and the staff are very helpful and know their Annie Sloan paint and  are full of ideas and suggestions on its uses.  So as the TV table in Lletty Cottage needed an update I knew where to go for advice.

P1050703-1 TV table in original pine. No work necessary before painting so brush on Chalk Paint Country Grey and let it dry!

P1050710-1 and voila …nearly there! A coating of soft wax gives a lovely  subtle shine.

P1050778-1 All finished and ready  in the cottage and waiting for the first visitors of the season. I didn’t realise we had so many DVD’s !

    Excellent work Marianne. Yes this chalk paint is all the rage now. I, too, have bought some chalk paint from the same shop and have painted a small chair as a practise try. Looks good!! Next I’ve got a kitchen table and 4 chairs; a pine dressing table and two bedside tables. Do you think that I will manage all that?
    See you tomorrow.
