This is the first time I have used chalk paint and I did not use the brand everyone else has been using. I used paint from American Paint Company and the color is Surfboard. I did not really distress it a lot and decided to use a poly instead of a wax for the topcoat.
I bought a set of the Martha Stewart adhesive silkscreens to stencil the feathers and I want to tell you there is such a difference in these and the stencil's I used years ago. It was so easy and a quick project.
Should have taken the pictures away from the wall so you would not see the cold air vent where I have the desk sitting but I decided I might as well be real about it since that is where it sits. I have a wooden shelf and file box that I have given a coat of the same color to sit on the desk but I am going to do some decoupage and a different finish so I will show how I dress the top later.
I could not believe how little of the paint I used and do not feel so bad about the price that I paid for a quart. I think I need to buy a couple more colors and work on some more of the items I have piled in my work area waiting for a coat of paint.
So glad that you stopped by! Blessings from our home in the woods.
