All this talk about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint has me wanting to look at beautiful photos of painted furniture on Pinterest!  Not all of the furniture below was painted using ASCP products but great to look at for inspiration and ideas that can be used with a great variety of Annie Sloan colors.   Would you like to see a few of my favorites?

New Sea Rose Cottage Sample Deck Giveaway!

February 8, 2012

SRC_Fan_Deck

I am so thrilled and honored to be hosting Sea Rose Cottage’s giveaway of the new Color Sample Deck! You might remember reading here where I first fell in love with the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Now you can purchase twenty eight gorgeous color swatches from the Annie Sloan Chalk paint collection all together in one fan deck! And you double the possibilities when you consider antiquing or toning the color with the  Annie Sloan clear and dark wax and of course the color mixing and color combinations are limitless!

What is even more special about this fan deck is that one side is shown with the color in the clear wax and the opposite side is the paint color shown with the dark wax applied. In the photo below the sample card on the far left is Annie Sloan Antibes Green painted (without wax), the middle Antibes Green is shown finished with the Annie Sloan clear wax and on the far right the Annie Sloan dark wax was used with the Antibes Green.

One color I am in love with and I think would be beautiful as an accent piece is the Annie Sloan Antibes Green:

Here is an example of the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Antibes Green using the dark wax but not the rustic distress of the table:

Although this chair below is not painted in the Antibes Green, you can simply make the same color by mixing a little of the Annie Sloan Arles color into the Antibes Green:

Love!!! See all of the different techniques and custom looks you can get from just one color? The fan deck is a great tool to visualize how your next masterpiece might take shape using the fan deck and the clear and dark wax!
