Video Tutorials: Repurpose Furniture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
With only 3 months left of my pregnancy, time is quickly running out on prepping the nursery. I have ordered most of the key pieces in my nursery and before they get delivered I am on a mission to paint the re-purposed hutch I bought at Consignment Classics for $69 and the side table that was given to me by my sister for the guest room. This past week I started my project by stocking up on my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and spent a couple of days painting and waxing the side table to get it ready for the nursery. I have taken a class on Annie Sloan Chalk Paint techniques but when I went to browse the net for a refresher tutorial I really couldn’t find that much material so I decided to shoot my own tutorial and share it with all of you! These 3 videos will take you through the basic steps of painting, distressing and waxing a piece of furniture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and giving it a more antique look. Please email me with any further questions!
