I took a leap into the world of chalk paint. After seeing so many wonderful projects in blogland, I was excited to receive my shipment. I ordered from a retailer in Florida on Friday and my products arrived on Wednesday. That's a pretty fast turn around.
The paint also comes off extremely easily. How do I know this, you ask? I was painting the accents in the old white when I got some on a part that I didn't mean to. I had a wet rag and went to wipe it off. It not only took off the old white but it also took off the duck egg blue, which had been applied a day earlier. Whoa! That's when I went back and read the book a little more carefully rather than just flipping through the pages.
So my plan for the holiday weekend is to finish this chair. Next step is to apply the wax. I would have loved to get that done yesterday, but the wax needs more than the ten minutes I could devote. For one, you need mineral spirits to clean the brush after use so it will have to wait for Saturday. I can't wait to reupholster. I'll be sharing the transformation next week.
This weekend also officially marks the beginning of our summer entertaining. The pool is open and ready to go. What do you have planned for Memorial Day weekend?
