Ever since I heard about the new Chalky Spray paint That Krylon put out I have been so curious. I am a closet spray painter--it is just so easy to spray paint things compared to painting with a brush. When I saw that our local Fred Meyer's was carrying it I just had to try it.
I found this hard plastic candelabra at Goodwill. I knew it would look better painted white.
I used the chalky spray paint on it and I actually liked it! It is a little thinner than their regular spray paints but I thought for a project like this it would be fast and easy--and it was! I also used the Matte sealer--I thought it was not as matte as I would like it to be. I like things to be really flat. I don't like a shine to anything. That's just me--I think it makes it look older that way.
This now becomes a beautiful decoration for Janae's wedding. She now tells me she just wants me to find 12 more. :)
I found this set for $5 on our local classifieds....
Very weathered and chippy--but sturdy-- I love it. Thing is as much as I love chippy this is too chippy so I am going to paint it and let the chipping begin again. :) Wouldn't it look adorable with a ruffled umbrella? I am always creating more projects for myself! Still can't believe I got it for $5!
I decided to try the chalky spray paint on one of the chairs...
It looks fine--but I thought it was a bit thin. I like the chalky paint paint for little projects but not so much for larger things.
Of course my true paint love, Annie Sloan chalk paint remains my true love. I have decided to do some small projects to sell and I am glad I did...they flew out the door :) Painted them in Annie Sloan Original White.
I need to find more clocks and mirrors--because they seem to be a customer favorite :)
Jaxon's Grandparents are on vacation and so I have my favorite little guy here for the next two weeks. I am sure we will have so much fun! It will be fun to have a 3 year old here 24/7 for the next couple weeks. Love that kid.
I am wondering how much painting I will be able to get done...especially because Jaxon always wants to help!
Thanks for visiting!
