Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Transformations
Here's the first piece that I found:
After a couple coats of Aubusson Blue, a coat of Clear Wax and some light distressing, here's what it transformed into:
I love this color and really enjoyed trying the paint for the first time.
Of course, I couldn't stop after one piece. I went out and found this great, vintage record cabinet, at a resale shop, and wanted to transform it into a tv stand/DVD cabinet.
Here's the before piece:
I got right to work on this great piece and painted the outside with a coat of Coco, then did a whitewash with Old White and finished that off with Dark Wax.
For the inside of this wonderful piece, I wanted to use Arles, a great mustard yellow. I put down a coat of Cream and then added a couple coats of Arles. I also added some Dark Wax to the interior as well. Here's a look:
Here's a close-up of the new knobs and details:
And after all of this work, it was finally time to put the TV on top and the DVD's inside :)

I hope you enjoyed looking at these transformations. Hopefully I will be able to find more pieces of furniture soon and transform them into new creations and get them posted on here for you to enjoy!
Have a wonderful week and a great Thanksgiving!!
