The bed, dresser, and nightstands got an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint makeover. I was so excited to find a stockist in downtown Portland. I actually have to dedicate this project to my friend Kari (from this post!) who went downtown and picked up the paint for me, and then helped me get started!
I used part Duck Egg Blue and part Old White. I mixed it using a really scientific formula of 1/3 cup Duck Egg Blue to 1/4 cup Old White. :) Each piece got two coats of paint, a coat of clear wax, some distressing, and then a little more wax. I spray painted the hardware white, but first cleaned it well and primed it with spray primer. The amazing thing about this paint was that I still had about 1/4 can of Duck Egg and 3/4 can of Old White left when I was done! It goes A LONG way! Unfortunately, I decided to paint my cheap Target bookcase with the Old White and it sucked up everything I had left. I think next time I'll save the paint for furniture I actually like.
Painting the furniture with ASCP was so much fun! No priming, dries in no time, no stinky paint smell- I decided that the paint was worth the money purely based on entertainment value! I can't wait to paint something else!
I'd still like to add some art on the wall behind the nightstand, a new light fixture, some kind of flowy curtains, and something above the dresser, but I love how far it's come! I'm trying not to move myself in!
