I was really lucky to win Anne Salone's Chalk Paint from Miss Mustard Seed's blog, generously donated by Lady Butterbug, from Texas, aren't those names just so darn cute! Miss Mustard Seed's blog is a "Must Follow" Blog. She is so Very Talented, a great inspiration, and super nice.
I won 2 cans of Chalk Paint, I chose Louis Blue and Old White, I also won a can of natural wax,
and a wonderful wax brush, so of course I had to order the dark wax and another wax brush.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Lady ButterBug and Miss Mustard Seed.
My NEXT POST will be my Chalk Paint Project!
This Post is all about....
Using Caromal Colours "Reclaim"
I was already in progress with these end tables.
Pretty Cute Huh!
I used Caromal Colours Reclaim Off White, for the Queen Anne legs.
Reclaim is similar to Chalk Paint, No Sanding, No Priming, No Prep!
Then, this is the Best Part
I was able to tint my Caromal Colours
"Reclaim" Off White!
It came out PERFECT.
I just asked the guy at the paint shop to sell me the tint they would use
for a quart of regular paint, but, I didn't want him to mix it with their paint.
I just wanted to buy the tint, I think it was $1.19 and $3.00 for the quart size can.
I picked out a beautiful, French Blue- it's such a beautiful color.
I could of chosen from 1000's of colors, you know, on all the color samples they have on cards.
I brought the tint home, and mixed it with my quart of Caromal Colours Reclaim Off White.
It's a Primer, Finish, and Sealer- All In One!
It sells for $ 34.50
I brushed it on the table top and drawers, took the hardware off, but painted with the same paint.
After it was dry, (it dries pretty quick)
I brushed on Caromal Colours Chipping Cream.
After it was dry, I brushed a very thin coat of Reclaim Off White.
When dry, I took a 3M sanding pad, and sanded some of the Off White.
I wanted just a little of the white to show through, here and there.
The look was awesome, the Chipping Cream, allows for the under lying color to show through.
The sanding went very quickly.
The Queen Anne legs were painted with Caromal Colours "Reclaim" Off White
I distressed the legs with a sanding pad 120 grit
the same for the top.
I love the look, they are already for sale at "my petite shop"
(space I rent at our local Antique Shop)
Next time, I'll take pics as I go.
