Chalk Paint Fun

Last weekend I finally used my sample pots of ASCP. I found a pedestal and salt and pepper shakers at Goodwill in need of a little makeover.



I used the Duck Egg Blue for the pedestal. I love how the paint went on with an immediate texture to it. I painted this with the wood showing through in places so sanding was not even needed. You will be seeing this in my spring decor in April with a few colorful eggs in it!

The shakers I used two coats of Old White. I sanded them and then used a dark wax to give an aged look. I can't believe how quickly this paint dries! I had these two things done in just a couple of hours.

I have to say I know this paint isn't cheap, but I had fun just using sample pots to try it out. Although, I haven't decided whether I will be purchasing larger portions yet. I have tried to be very picky about what I use it on because it is so precious! Just be sure when reading instructions on the pot, you don't tilt the jar enough to spill this gold on the floor (ask me how I know)!! I think I almost cried!

I have to thank you for the wonderful comments on my pink vanity! I can't wait to share another furniture makeover later this week!
