Chalk Paint Projects!

My sister and I went to Faux Studio Designs last week for some more chalk paint. I got Old White and my sister and I split Duck Egg and Aubusson Blue to see how we liked. Of course I love all of them - here are some pictures!

The mirror and bottom of the credenza is Old White.

This piece is a little mixed then distressed with wet cloth like Stacey showed us in our class!

These next two are Aubusson Blue. It's a little darker but I love it. Stacey at Faux Studio Designs showed us in class how to mix paint with the clear wax so if you want to lighten the piece up in areas, that's a great way to do it.

This is an antique sewing box my sister did in Duck Egg then put a little dark wax on top (I wish I could take pictures this clearly!). The piece in the next picture is also Duck Egg!
