I have been playing with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Cece Caldwell Chalk Paint for a few months now. It did the job. It had a decent finish. Some of my pieces turned out mediocre and some turned out really good, but not good enough for me. Small pieces, I have not had a problem with, they turn out great, but the furniture, I haven't had the best of luck with. I have spent quite a bit of money trying to learn how to get the professional finish that I wanted, without traveling to an workshop miles and miles away. In hindsight, it would have been cheaper to travel all of those miles, but eh, I am a diy girl! I am self taught! I can do this!
This is the first weekend that I've had off from everyone and everything. I am determined to get some of this furniture painting done. Tonight, while I was struggling with my Coco dresser on the deck, in the dark, with mosquitoes biting me everywhere and low lighting, I finally saw the finish I was looking for!! I was so excited that I didn't even notice all that buzzing in my ears! Finally!!! I wish I could continue to work on it tonight, but those mosquitoes are really eating me up! So stay tuned!
