WHITE CHALK PAINT

 This is how she sat on the floor at the auction.  Too cute.  I saw her with white paint and a green glass knob.
Sooooo, I bid on and won the lil table on the left.  Nope, didn't get the other one.  When buying to RESALE, ya have to remember, ya gotta get it low, and someone else decided they wanted it more than I did.  

Check out the next page for the quick and easy transformation.



Brought into my garage/workroom and


two coats of homemade chalk paint (RECIPE FOUND HERE),


a little sanding around the edges to shabby her up,

,

add that green glass pull that I saw her wearing when I first spotted her,


and WA LA.  That's it.  So very easy, but what a change.


What cha think??  Sweet huh??

  9. A great transformation, and really like the lighter finish with the aging added. I haven't tried home made chalk paint but will give it a try. the other is just so expensive. Loving the cute green knob! Also like the name of your blog! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday's Best, and hope you join us again! PS - following you on Linky!

  16. Just came upon your blog. Love your stuff and painting stuff too! When you distress the edges, do you sand by hand or with an electric palm sander? Thanks!

  17. Angie......thanks so very much for the sweet comment. And, I usually use a palm sander, but sometimes on smaller pieces, just sand by hand. COME BACK SOON.
