A Date With Chalk Paint

In the last few months Chalk paint has exploded all over blog land. Everybody is in LOVE!
Last fall began my love for Annie Sloan and her fabulous chalk paints after I had found her book at HomeGoods. I had to get some and though I was not able to splurge on the quart size at the time I was lucky enough to get several sample pots. Today I grabbed what was left of my sample pots.

A work still in progress!

P.s. If ya wanna a chance at winning not one but 3 quarts of this fabulous paint head on over to Molly Susan Strong's blog. 
Also if ya wanna see a divine showroom full of Chalk Paint head over to Blue Creek Home! I am so jealous Rhonda!;) I think there even may be a give away soon!:)
Ps.s. Rhonda over at BlueCreek Home is celebrating her 2 yr bloggin anniversary so head over and tell her congrats and enter to win an awesome Annie Sloan Chalk Paint kit courtesy of Robin Story Designs!!


  1. Yep, you're right - I am about to post the giveaway and it does involve chalk paint!!!!
    Wouldn't we all give anything if that cabinet full of chalk paint supplies was in our own homes!

  2. Pamela, I need to get the sample size instead of these cans. I have paint left over. I need to try new colors, but don't need a quart.

  3. I didn't know they made samples, Pamela! I'll have to see if I can get some because I would like to check out a few of the other colors. I got the Old White in a quart and I'm just waiting on some clear wax I ordered today from Robyn {who Rhonda posted about}! I was going to start my headboard this past weekend, but I believe, from what Kim told me, you do need the wax. So, I put it off so it wouldn't get messed up.

  4. I can't wait to see what you are up too and I know it will be gorgeous! Does it have anything to do with that mirror from the last post? :-) I wanted to let you know too that I think you're floors and fireplace are looking amazing and I feel like I could barely get the bathrooms cleaned today let alone try to work on such a huge project. It is really beautiful and I think you have completely transformed your home in the 2 years you have lived there!

  5. Have fun on your date Pamela, I have a feeling you will.

  6. I have read about this paint, and I think I need to try it out!! I have an idea of what I could do.....hmm...thanks for the inspiration.
    Did you get my email?? I can call you soon if you let me know how to get in touch with you and when.

  7. Now, what are you doing teasing us like that ?! I can't wait to see the reveal ... as well as finally open my cans of chalk paint and get busy !!

  8. Where did you get samples? I asked and they said they only sell quarts? :( lol
