2011 Painted Projects Review

Linking to

My first 'posted about' try at painting 'objects' was a ornamental bird cage and ceramic bird (April 6/11). I was influenced by reading and tutorials from other painting bloggers, here is # 1 (pre-Picnik).

I painted a lot of vintage green small furniture.  Then on March 17, 2011 Miss Mustard Seed blogged about chalk paint (Annie Sloan). Over the next few months I wanted/desired ASCP and learned a great deal about that paint in the interm. Finally, in August, there was a reseller in BC and the store (The Passionate Painter) was in Langley, a drivable distance. Painted more furniture. Used up a great deal of a soft vintage color of green latex as well. Chairs, side tables, little tables, a dresser, children's furniture, frames, chalk boards, bulletin board. Links with the pictures below to the original posts. I enjoyed the learning, enjoyed spray painting, enjoyed chalk paint.
What follows is a 'grouping' of furniture, frames and chalkboards.
