I am finding that I am not alone in this passion. My recent search to acquire and use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (see my other blogs on this subject) led me to many websites and blogs (and YouTube videos) of people using her products and creating great looking pieces of furniture. Clearly, there are other techniques and methods that can be used. Setting up and following pinterest leads is another great way to find fresh and exciting ideas - many of these come from that effort.
This blog celebrates some of the great work being done with older pieces of furniture that should be easy to find and transform into exciting pieces in any setting! There are some brilliant ideas here!

I found this on the side the road that said "FREE IF YOU TAKE IT NOW!!!" so I flipped a "U-ey" and hopped out to snag it before they changed their mind! I sprayed it with Krylon Ocean Breeze. I used a sponge brush and hand painted the edges of all the detail and curves with this Folk Art Metallic Pearl White. It highlighted the details beautifully!

I started out with a quart of Louis Blue, a quart of Old White and a sample of Paris Gray and still have plenty of paint for more projects. Even with three colors, I’ve been able to achieve a variety of shades and tones by mixing the paint.
