I have been hearing so much lately about chalk paint. I think this paint helps you achieve the look of old painted furniture and I've seen some great painted furniture on different blogs (especially Miss Mustard Seed). I haven't tried it yet but have heard great things and I have heard that a retailer is coming to the Birmingham area soon who will sell the chalk paint and waxes. I found these pics on Urban Barn's blog - they are going to be offering an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshop. If I get more info. on where to buy it in Birmingham, I will let you know!
