Unusual Uses for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

It is now going on two years that I have been using (and loving) Annie Sloan Chalk Paint link to website. I have mostly used the very versatile chalk paint on refurbished upholstered pieces and have limited my finishes to regular (just paint and clear or dark wax), distressed (some sanding away of finish), and dry brushing of one color over the other. All of these have worked very well.

I have set up a pinterest board for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and have been collecting tips and techniques as well as images to inspire my work. I have been AMAZED by some of the more creative uses of this great product and this posting features some of those applications.  All of these images and explanations are available on my pinterest board - link to my board.

Love this "stone" look on lamp base. 
Clever !
Chalk paint plus gilding on brass fixtures - this really updates this look! 
WOW - perfect for upcoming halloween celebrations! 
Paint inside of these jars - what a nice look for simple and cheap glassware!
This is a nice way to take different frames and create a coherent set for any decor. 
These are fabrics painted with chalk paint - I am still not sure about this!
Well on this labor day, this seemed like a nice topic for inspiration! It is raining outside (again), so I may just finish up my current ASCP projects and move onto something a little different!
