Before and After Chalk Paint Projects

I made a few collages of projects from start to finish.
This is a French Provincial cabinet that is in our dining room.
We are not going to use it for dishes, but as a massive paper
storage, mail and filing center for our overwhelming paperwork.
Its working out great as our mail and billing center.
At any rate, I painted it with Louis Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.
Then I dry brushed it with a mix of Old White and Louis Blue for
added dimension, then distressed it back. I still have to wax it,
but at this point the difference is huge!

This beat up old stereo cabinet was made over using Annie Sloan's darkest color, Graphite.
After only one coat, we applied silver foil using foil size by Artsian Enhancements and then
applied silver foil to the entire thing.  After that we stenciled the doors with one of our
Royal Design stencils and this is the finished result!  Pretty amazing, right?
We sell the foil, the sizing, Chalk Paint and stencils in our shop,
both in Reading Mass and online at 
This old oak bookcase was treated to a makeover with the intention of turning it
into a display cabinet for the Efex appliques we carry. We thought it would be fun
if we used the Efex on it so people could see how realistic they look.  To this day in the shop
people do not realize we applied these moldings! After we applied the Efex, it was painted with 
Paris Grey Chalk Paint and finished with Clear and Dark wax.
