I've been toying with the idea of painting my fireplace. The brick wasn't ugly but it was old and had lost it's appeal. I decided to take the plunge and paint it. I'm so glad I did. It looks clean and fresh now.Plus, It cost me $0! I already had everything I needed laying around in my garage.
Love the Annie Sloan chalk paints and fabulous colors but cannot afford a can of paint for every project? I feel your pain and found a great solution in a $4.00 can of spray paint.
Easy Rocking chair makeover. Use Shabby Chalked Paint to update outdated fabric for a fresh new look. Strong but flexible!
Sorry this will be Short and Sweet guys.
Sprayed the fabric with a fine mist of water. (keeping the fabric slightly damp will help it stay softer than it would if you painted over it dry, just a mist or it will delay dry time!) ...
Refinishing our dark wood table was something I’ve wanted to do since we moved into our newly remodeled house which has a much more beachy vibe, but I was a little afraid of ruining it since I'd never refinished a table before. I loved this table, and it’s color, when we first bought it over 14 years ago but it just didn’t look right in our new home. We use it as a kitchen table for casual everyday meals when we are not sitting at our enormous kitchen island, or in our dining room. It was a dark chocolate brown and I was unsure if I’d ever be able to lighten it up. Well, thankfully I was, and I am so happy with the result. Here is a step by step of how I did it.

I have a silver plated tray someone gave me for Christmas one year. It was spotted and very thin, not in great shape...I decided to give it a few coats of chalk board paint. I love how it looks in my kitchen now.

After trying a couple of DIY Chalk-type Paint Recipes, I settled on my absolute favorite. It gives a great chalky finish and looks fantastic. Here's how I made it!
I experimented with another chalky paint recipe before I found my favorite. I tried the plaster of paris formula, and was less than thrilled with it. Maybe I didn't mix it quite right, but whatever the reason, it turned out grittier than I had wanted.
We love it! Chalkboard paint is easy to make and has so many applications. Here are a few of our favorites. What would you do with chalkboard paint? Recipe: http://bit.ly/zd57BX
I always avoid indoor paint projects because of the fumes. Even with low VOC paint, I don’t want to pollute what precious indoor air quality I have in my basement craft studio – especially in the winter months when I can’t even crack a window open. Did you know that there are no VOCs in milk paint? Because it’s truly non-toxic, I get to keep every brain cell so I can keep dreaming up new projects!When I found out that you could add a bonding agent to make milk paint stick to challenging things like glass, metal and varnished items, that was the icing on the cake. I knew I had my first test subject to try out when I spied this cute little varnished adirondack chair at Value Village!

Remember here when I painted my dining room table and I told you we were missing a chair? I searched and searched with no luck. Well, my Mama reminded me that our chairs from my childhood were pretty much just like mine? "Oh yeah", I said! Luckily My sweet Mama keeps everything and she still had two chairs that were usable. Score!

Turn an old window and some tin cans into a gorgeous herb garden for your backyard. Not only does the upcycled window herb planter looks fantastic in my little garden but it's really practical, as I now have my own little herb garden. The herbs are in portable upcycled tin can planters, that can be easily taken into the kitchen when needed. I decided to use old tin cans as planters as I had lot of success with the colourful tin can planter (click here to see) I made last year. />
