The mirror (nice garage sale find) is a HomeSense and the tag was still on. I actually like it blue but decided to try dry brush (first try). Tomorrow it will look different because after today's experiment I went out to buy some new paint. Couldn't find anything with the word Shabby Chic or Cottage White as a name so settled on Avocado Souffle - cream with a tiny tinge toward olive green.
This is after I found out that Canada does not have a Chalk Paint distributor (Chalkboard paint yes, Chalk paint no). There are many distributor's of this English paint in the USA but postage just puts it too far out of reality to order in. Marion of Miss Mustard Seed writes about this paint here and she has been using it and posting absolutely great photos in her blog. She also has a distributor list. Anne Sloan, the person who owns Chalk Paint has a UK web site is here.
