My glider is the last of the projects in this Chalk Paint® Painting Outdoor Series.
This is what it looked like before painting with color Provence Chalk Paint®.
All I did was sand off some loose paint and dust the glider off with an old wide paint brush. I like to use an old paint brush for a duster...easy and faster than using a rag.
I painted on one coat of color Provence to the glider.
By the time I finished painting the back the front was dry and ready to be
sanded with 220 grit sandpaper.
This is a close up before sanding....
...and after sanding. I found several layers of paint
underneath the Provence...brown, yellow, and some white.
This is another close up before sanding....
...and the finished project. It took me all of 45 minutes from start to finish. For two metal chairs and the glider I used 1/2 quart of paint. You're going to LOVE this paint!
As you can see painting outside with Annie's Chalk Paint® is so easy and very durable.
I did not seal the glider with any product. Do not wax on outside pieces.
If you wish to seal outside projects I recommend Artisan Enhancement Clear Topcoat
which is rated for exterior use and leaves a very nice matte finish.

This was a brass light fixture base. I painted the base in Annie's color Paris Grey.
Paris Grey is a light gray with a ting of blue.
No need to sand or prime metal when using Annie's
Chalk Paint®. I did not put a sealer on this project.
I hung the fixture on the white fence and found a clay pot to fit the opening.
I filled the pot with my favorite plants oxalis, phlox, and dusty miller.
I put dirt in the small bottom hole and planted English Ivy.
For a different look I planted Diamond Frost in the other fixture.
I love the easy and quickness of painting with Chalk Paint®.
This was a ten minute project.

CHALK PAINT® OUTDOOR PAINTING PROJECT #2
This chippy arched ironwork piece came out of a nearby church.
Over the years it has lost its white color and rusted.
I scraped off the chippy paint and painted with Annie's
color Old White right over the rust.
I sanded a little for a weathered look and know weather will add even more patina over time.
Remember no wax is needed outside.
