I started with this little child's porch rocker.
I'm lovin this home made chalk paint and mixed up a batch of yellow for these projects. The only mixture I've tried so far is the Plaster of Paris Recipe............which is:
one part hot water, one part Plaster of Paris to two parts latex paint.
After two coats of the chalk paint mixture, I like to sand the edges to give things that shabby, aged look. For that, I always use my lil Mouse sander by Black and Decker...........perfect size for us ladies.
Finished and sittin in front of the shop. It's more yellow that it appears here.
And of course, while painting this piece, and the brushes are already wet, gotta do more that just ONE project.
I wasn't sure how painting the cane seat would do. But, so far, the chalk paint sticks to everything I've tried it on..........so here goes.
Yelp. Worked great!!!
What about this little child's desk/side table???
And, just to clean the paint outta the brushes, I painted a couple baskets too. 8-)
What cha think??? Five projects in one afternoon. Not a bad afternoon's work.
