Inspiration: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Client Project

December 10, 2017

I met with potential client last week who was interested in a bedroom set update.  Several years ago, they purchased a 5 piece bedroom set made by the Amish.  They love the furniture, but feel like it needs a refresh.  Immediately, I think of Annie Sloan chalk paint. 


I've painted several pieces of furniture with Annie Sloan chalk paint, and I feel like it's the perfect paint for a refresh.  The very first piece I painted was way back in 2013, when my neighbor, also a semi-pro chalk painter, showed me the Annie Sloan ropes.  Together, we painted an old office armoire and converted it into a baby changing table.

Same piece, just not nearly as cute of a picture:


When our caboose needed a big girl room, we pulled together a bedroom set using her brother's Land of Nod bed and her sister's Haverty's end table, bookshelf and dresser.  The end table, dresser, and a bookshelf were all painted with Annie Sloan.

My teenager inherited a partial campaign furniture bedroom set that included two end tables and a chest.
