*Painting With Chalk Paint. Product was received. This post includes my affiliate links.
My sister Tamra is so creative. She is ALWAYS working on some project or another. She also has 6 children.. Go figure! I have a hard time finding time for myself with three kids, let alone get things done, sigh. I call my sister, Martha Stewart because she literally can do it ALL. So, Painting With Chalk Paint was going to be easy for her!
When she heard I was able to review products from Annie Sloan Unfolded & Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint, she went CRAZY. So, I allowed her to do this review for me! Painting with chalk paint was new for her, so she was eager to get started with painting with chalk paint!
Painting With Chalk Paint
We were sent an array of Annie Sloan chalk paint products to use on her projects. Below, you will read her honest thoughts on the products and see pictures of her projects!! Time to get Painting With Chalk Paint! Yay!
My Sister’s Review…Painting With Chalk Paint!
What did you think of the chalk paint products when they arrived?
The chalk paint products arrived in excellent condition and were packaged well. I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that I received more paint than I had thought I would receive! I was thrilled to receive not 1 but 4 quarts of the Provence color paint!
Did they work out how you thought they would? Thoughts??
I was very excited to get to work and chalk paint some things I have been wanting to paint… As far as the paint color, I love it! Perfect color for what I wanted.
What project did you want to use it on?
I painted a bench, a wall shelf, a smaller bench, and a chalkboard/cork board.
Explain what you did…
-first thing I painted was a chalk/cork board I have that I did not like the color of because it blended too much with the color of my walls and I wanted to change that; so I used the old white, followed by the soft wax and it turned out just how I wanted it to. Now it stands out on my wall.
Yes! I would definitely buy and recommend Annie Sloan paint… In fact, I liked what was sent to me to review so much that when I was in a town that sells the Annie Sloan paint,(The Purple Pear in Portland, Oregon) I bought a quart of the old white, plus a can of the dark wax.
Yes, the paint and the wax are very expensive… I could have bought a whole gallon of regular paint for the price I paid for the quart of the Annie Sloan paint alone, but it’s worth it:) I have a much bigger project to paint that I am eagerly anticipating and will use the old white and the dark wax on it. I am also excited about having more of the Provence paint to use!
Thank you for allowing me to do this review. I very much appreciated the opportunity to try these products out and will (and have already) be recommending Annie Sloan to all my painting friends:)
So, as you can see, my sister just loved Annie Sloan!! And you can see why! Her projects turned out beautiful, as always!
