I promise I won't show
you every project that I work on
but this is the first set of projects that I
completed on my own so
I thought I'd show them off.
|This was the rocking chair that|
my mom rocked me in when I was
born, so it is 62 years old.
It has had many, many coats
of paint through the years and I wanted
to give it a Shabby Chic look.
|I painted 2 coats of red chalk paint over the blue|
without doing any prep.
That's the part I like the most--NO PREP.
|The more you sand, the more|

|My other piece was this|
whatnot shelf that I have
had for many years.
I remember it hanging in my
room when I was a teenager.
It was white when I started.
|I painted 2 coats of red, then a coat of|
turquoise. (These aren't the exact
Annie Sloan names, but I am too
tired to go and look at the paint
