Chalk Art Fun

2

I’m done painting for the week!  Whoohoo!!!  I’m as ready as I can be for the BIG EVENT this weekend at Junk In The Trunk Vintage Market!  I’ll be located in Booth 81 so please stop by and say “Hello”!  I’m so behind on all my project photo shoots but here’s a taste of what’s to come…

SAM_4452I was looking to do something fun and unique with this console.  I don’t always want everyone to see the clutter behind glass doors so I sprayed the glass with chalkboard paint and painted the inside with chalk paint.  The entire piece was painted first with CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White Chalk Paint and the second coat was done in Annie Sloan’s Paris Grey Chalk Paint.  Next, I used a mixture of clear wax and aging cream to distress and protect the finish.

Then came the real fun!  Time to create a design with chalk.

OK…free handing two exact designs side by side is a little difficult but no worries, that’s what an eraser is for right?  I love drawing and painting wheat, it’s very forgiving!

You would never know there was ever glass there!

Here’s another little before and after that will be heading to market…

I wanted to try out ASCP French Linen.  Really like the color and I was so glad I happen to have just enough of this material left over from another project to reupholster this stool.   It paint and the material match perfectly…BONUS!

Lots of frames, mirrors and chalkboards will also be loaded into the truck for the show.  My hubby has gotten quite good I must say, at crafting.  He’s such a trooper!

Thanks so much for visiting ~ Judy

  1. What a great piece, Judy! Love the chalk art you did, too. That’s going to provide a lot of storage for someone. Love the footstool. I love redoing them, too, but for some reason it is harder to sell upholstered redo’s here in Ohio. I’ve noticed that fabric at Joann’s in another colorway and loved it. It looks great with the new paint color.

  2. You had the brilliant idea of chalk. Anyone can change the your picture, paint a new one – another spring, another for Easter, another for Christmas. You inspired me. Hilsen fra Norway . Anna

  3. I purchased that beautiful entry table for my house at the Junk in the Trunk event. It looks amazing in my house and I cant wait to find other great treasures by you!

    • Yay…I’m so excited that you are happy with your treasure! It’s such an unexpected fun piece! I’m sure it looks wonderful in your entryway! Just let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with! Thanks so much Haley! HUGS!!! ~ Judy
