Upcycled blackboard with #chalkpaint #AnnieSloan #Paloma

I bought this in a charity shop and wanted to keep some of the flower and bird detail at the top because I thought it was quite well done.  I repainted the ‘green’ board with blackboard paint and the rest in Paloma.  I lightly distressed the frame, waxed with dark wax and then with clear wax.

Revamped African Basket with Annie Sloan Paint

Ever since I went on an Annie Sloan chalk paint course run by Dulwich Trader in London, nothing has been safe from being painted, decoupaged, gilded or waxed!  This is my latest project:  painted with English Yellow and Violet Grey.  I will seal it with clear wax once the paint has fully dried.
