~ Chalk It Up Stenciled Floor ~

The master bedroom floor started out a mess.  
The previous owner utilized a wheelchair and the chair was very 
hard on the floor finish plus there was water damage.  
I decided not to refinish because of the dust and cost. 

Before Floor

So I limed washed the floor with Chalk Paint™ Old White.  
I wanted a heavier painted look so I opted to paint 
with a can of flat paint I had in the paint cupboard.  
You can see that the paint has a pink cast to it...not sure of the paint name.

Painted Stenciled Floor With Chalk Paint™

Next I painted in the stenciled area with Chalk Paint™  Pure White
...I love this color...

Sponged on two coats of Annie Sloan's Floor Lacquer.
I just love the finished floor!!!

Such an easy and quick project thanks to Chalk Paint™...no priming or sanding!!!

~ Annie Sloan Chair Redo ~


I can remember as a child Mom and Dad hiring an interior decorator. 
They purchased two chairs and had them covered in this beautiful golden velvet.  
I fortunately received the chairs when my parents moved into an senior community.

Before Chair

The upholstery is still in great shape and I love  the color.  
I wanted to paint the wood in Chalk Paint™ Old White without ruining the fabric.  
So I taped off the upholstery with the trusty blue painter's tape
.
How to Tape Chair

I painted two coats of the Old White, clear waxed, distressed, and clear waxed again. 
Next I took off the blue tape and not a drop or smear of paint anywhere.
I buffed with a soft rag....

...I just love the new look.

What a simple and inexpensive way to
paint a chair without messing up the upholstery!!!

Maybe you noticed the stenciled floor...I will post about how I achieved this look soon.
