Paint brushes in hand, the makeover began! Karen had this to say about their first experience using Chalk Paint™:
"We purchase these 2 items from apple box and we loved them. We painted them with old white chalk paint, and distressed them. It was our first time working with chalk paint, and distressing items (my husband and i). We finished it off with clear wax, and we redid the hardware black. We love it and, the one piece shows off my precious moments ornaments beautifully. "
"Love your store and staff and, we will be back."
We love the fabulous transformation!
Karen and Paul are the winners of our January 2015 Reimagined Monday contest. Each month we draw names from the submitted projects and a prize. Recently Annie Sloan published a brand new coffee table book, and now Karen and Paul own a copy that is sure to inspire!
World renowned paint effects guru and color expert Annie Sloan considers what makes a successful interior. Style and color lie at the heart of the matter, but both can be stumbling blocks for the amateur decorator. Annie explains how to achieve your chosen style by creating moodboards and analyzing key factors--scale, focus, display and layout. She examines nine popular styes: Boho Chic, Neo-Classical, Vintage Floral, French Style, Swedish Style, Coastal Style, Classic Country, Modern Retro, and Rough Luxe. Discover, then, the key techniques you'll need to recreate these styles in your own home: color theory (why do some colors work so well together? Why can the same color look dramatically different in different rooms?), using storytelling with pictures and collected treasures, style fusions (combining your favorite styles), and, of course, paint techniques. With stunning photography and packed with practical advice, this will soon become your interior style bible.
