Oh the Colors You Can Choose - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Projects!

One of my largest pinterest boards (and one of the boards that has the largest following) is my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) board (link to pinterest.  I find so much inspiration when visiting other blogs and some are practically devoted to ASCP projects.  I am particularly fascinated by the more dramatic paints and the more creative applications that I see.  I have six colors in my cupboard and have used all but the Coco (just purchased) and the sample size of Napoleon Blue:

Old White
Old Ochre
Paris Grey
Chateau Grey
Duck Egg Blue
Coco (my newest)
Napoleon Blue (sample size)

Here are some highlights from my Pinterest board - some of these are truly amazing!  Another reason to visit some of these blogs is that there a lot of tips and techniques.  In fact, I have found, that once I found these sources, I no longer needed ASCP books - the ideas were all here and available!

I am feeling the urge to start some new projects - just after FINALLY clearing and cleaning our garage from my latest projects!!

  2. I need help! My project isn't looking so swift and I'm not sure where I went wrong!! I need to take a closer look at these:)

    1. There are quite a few tutorials you might look at. What kind of problems are you having?
