Annie Sloan Table

Spring has arrived in N.C. The weather has been glorious and snakes are even out. I know this because I stumbled upon one while walking the boys and had to beat cheeks to safety. Now that its warmed up, I've started tackling my list of painting projects. First up, a wooden plant stand from an unfinished furniture warehouse. 

My dad helped me spray paint this table barn red when I got my first place 13 years ago. Last year I gave it an experimental makeover by spray painting it green and adding a white wash. This week it received yet another coat of paint. I went for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey with clear wax. 
I just love how it turned out! Little bits of red and green show through from the tables past life. 

One thing that I've learned recently is don't be afraid to use a high quality brush with Anne Sloan Chalk Paint. The paint washes right out with warm water and mild soap. I personally like and recommend brushes made by Purdy.

I love the green and grey together! I have been wanting to use Annie Sloan for a while now... just haven't found the right piece yet!

I've been looking for a piece on which I can use ASCP. Love the color you chose for this one, and I too love the bits of green and red showing through. Nice job. Visiting from Serenity Now.
