Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Old White- small tabletop Oak Tilt Mirror

DebbieDoo's Newbie Party every Monday with Debbiedoos Blog




ASCP Oak Tilt Mirror - tabletop

I have been saving this little mirror all summer, waiting until I found Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I used "Old White" for the top two coats of paint. Based on my experience with the teacup shelf I sprayed Rust-oleum Painter's Touch Heirloom White for a base coat. Based on that experience I went out and bought Rust-oleum Painters Touch White Primer for my next project. Why - too much shine for a base coat. I also picked up Rust-oleum Universal Brown Hammered (read and follow the instructions on this one, it has very nasty fumes and bonds to everything) to spray (outside) the metal knobs seen in third picture.
Before

in progress (table shows the several projects) I was grateful to myself for
masking out the mirror (both sides). Made final cleanup much faster.
finished mirror - waxed
and now on a shelf in my booth.

  2. Just beautiful!! I have heard a lot about this paint....Annie Sloan Chaulk Paint. I am refinishing a big chest as I write. For me I just buy a big can of Behr in white and a big can of Kiltz. Then I ad lib....wipe on other colors and wipe off...with lots of sanding in between. Then I use a Minwax Polyshade. I am always surprised when my pieces turn out! I am a sloppy painter so all I can do is the 'shabby chic' look. YOURS on the other hand look so professional. But then - you ARE!!

  3. Great transformation, it looks wonderful!
    Annie Sloan paint is quite hard to get here as there are so few stockists, but I have one of her books and it sounds like great versatile paint.

  6. It looks beautiful! I've used those metal-y spray paints, and you're right - the fumes are horrible. But the finished product is really nice.
