Chalk Paint

As most of you know I am in love with this here book by Annie Sloan and vowed to somehow someway get ahold of some of her fabulous chalk paints!
Look what came in the mail on Saturday!! I finally was able to find a US "stockist". What was even more fab was that they carried 4 oz sample sizes! Now as far as being economical for sample sizes it was not. With shipping those four samples cost me abt $10 each but I HAD to  have them! Thrown in was a sample size of wax though!

They even included a color chart with the actual paint on it so you can see the true colors!! I am excited to get to play around with these. If I can decided on one of the colors for three differ projects and if they truly do stand up to no prep needed then I will order a gallon.
On a Thankful Tuesday note I want to say thank you again for all the prayers and well wishes for my father in law The Papa! As you know he traveled back to Ga and saw his docs. They did a color CT and THANK YOU Lord all was clear!!! Prayers answered!

Have a great Tuesday ya'll and thanx for voting on my sidebar abt what color I should paint the kitchen island! I think there are a few more days to vote. As of right now Cream is in the lead but for awhile now red was the winner.


  1. I've never used chalk paint! Love the kitchen pics below, can't wait to see what your island turns out like :)

  2. I love that book too. I can't wait to hear what you think of the paint when you use it! Can you share where you found it?

  3. Glad the Papa is doing fine. Love those paint colors.

  4. I just found your blog and have seen some many great ideas already! Can't wait to read more and see how the island turns out!

  5. Great news about your father in law and the paints look wonderful! I am loving some of those colors!! :)

  6. Oooooo...can't wait to see what you do with those chalk paints! I think I was leaning towards the red for your island but now I'm waffling between that and the cream. Hmmmm... whatever you do it will be gorgeous! :-)

  7. How neat!!!! I'm so glad you got a lamp too!

  10. Oh that book is perfect for you. Never used chalkboard paint but might have to try it in the babies room : )
    Maybe you should paint the island red and add the cream on top for a distressed look. Just a crazy thought.
    Praises for your FIL. Glad everything looks good.

  11. Patience is a virtue, girl. Surprisingly I have patience with kids but not anywhere else. I hate waiting at the dr's office, in traffic, etc. Crazy.

    Ha, I put chalkboard paint. I knew you said it was chalk paint. Pregnancy brain. Can't wait to see what you do.

    You are too kind to make something for our lil one. We can't wait to find out and will definitely let you know : )


I love when ya stop by so leave me a comment if ya have some time! I always try and respond but sadly enough sometimes I am unable to return the love due to noreply blogger status.
