Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Painting Continues...

In my quest for a light, neutral environment,
I'm painting often. As much as I've painted
in this past year, it never ceases to amaze
and please me when I see the effects of a 
coat of fresh paint on an object - large or small. 

My oldest son, Ethan, gave me this little 
metal rose candle holder when he was a boy.

It is one of those items I will keep forever.
But I had it tucked away in my garage.

Until I thought of painting it with ASCP.

Now, I love it even more. And I am excited
about finding the right place to put it.

I bought this piece last year, but only now 
have I gotten around to painting it. 

Here is what it looked like before:

And here it is after a coat of ASCP Old White:

This piece is crying out for some embellishment!

And plain Jane that I am, I can surely
commit to a trendy treatment for this
small cabinet. I'd like to try a transfer.

I sort of messed up on this piece...
I should have painted it another
color first - or primed it with gray.

Because when I distressed it, of course
the blue came through. No bare wood, just blue.

I think this one is going to get a 
touch up coat of ASCP to cover
the blue. It's just not my thing.

These signs were tweaked with ASCP trim. 
It's a subtle change, but better.

After: (bad photo, but see the white border)

After: (Ditto.)

Sorry about the bad photos. Light was fading 
and night was coming. The end of a productive day...

Word for the Day:
Lamentations 3:22-23
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; 
his mercies never come to an end; 
they are new every morning
great is your faithfulness.

Beautiful job on all of your projects! There's nothing out there that a little ASCP can't fix! :)
