Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint/Desk From Goodwill Store

I love shopping for inspiration pieces at Goodwill Stores. I could not remove the varnish from this desk and found Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint. Now I am searching far and wide for items to paint. This is my first try at using the paint w/the dark wax. I think I went a little too far w/the dark wax but the coverage of the paint is amazing. Hope you like it too. I also painted the vase on the desk. It is ceramic and the paint covered it very well also.

    What a nice you did on this cute little desk. I keep hearing about chalk paint. It just might be time to visit the hardware store.

      @Margie Howard Hi Margie, you can find Chalk Paint at one of the retailers that sells near you. Here is the link: to find in the US. Also there is CeCe Caldwell's chalk paint. There are You Tube videos on how to mix your own and some posts also that reside here in Hometalk. I will see if I can find some and copy the link in the reply later. Hope this helps. :) Happy painting Margie
