Chippy Paris Grey

Happy Halloween little spooks!  I wanted to share pictures of the completed Paris Grey piece from the dark wax video tutorial.  {If you missed it, you can find it here, along with the paint and clear wax tutorials.}  I love how this piece turned out and can't wait to share with you how I easily achieved the chippy finish {hint, hint...video tutorial coming soon}.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Tutorial

After I posted the wax video tutorial a couple of months ago, I received tons of questions about applying chalk paint.  You know what that means...a new video tutorial!  I don't know about y'all but I'm a visual learner.  If I can watch you do something then I have it down...if I read the steps, I tend to have too many follow-up questions.  {cindy.must.have.pictures.or.videos.to.diy}  Please keep in mind that a) I'm no expert but I do have experience messing things up and then trying to make them pretty and b) I'm not a natural in front of a video camera {or iPad in this case}.  Enjoy!

Distressed To Perfection

I finally had a few minutes this weekend to film a video tutorial on Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  The video will be posted tomorrow but FIRST I want to show you how the side tables in the video turned out.
