Decor Art/Treasure Blue Chalkpaint

HI all, how are you? Has anyone babysat ,more than 2 times this week?LOL
It has been so cold …I read where some of you are at –40 below and I just
can’t imagine being that cold. At –2 degrees I’m shivering!
First I’d like to thank Jamie-So Much Better With Age for featuring my Valentine mantle
at Give Me the Goods linky party. Thanks so much Jamie!
For Christmas I had on my list a gift card for Home Depot so
that I could purchase the Décor Art Americana Chalkpaint.  I ordered
the chalkpaint named, Treasure, I really loved the blue for my washstand
that I was not liking at all in the white I had last painted it.

I waxed the top with clear and the blue with the brown wax.
I really like the blue washstand in the foyer I think it needed it!
I do like the paint, it covered in two coats and went on smooth. The wax is very nice too
but I’m going to order a brush from them because I don’t think I did a good job with
the brown wax and cloth…maybe I’ll try it again.

Hard to take a picture in my entryway because it is either to
light or to dark.
foyer 005
I still have to fiddle around with it but wanted to show you what I’ve
been up to. The black hook laying there I think I’ll use on the wall, have to see about
that though.

My husband was glad for a mirror to be back on the wall. Found the
cute owl at Kohl’s.

I bought the handles at Target.

I had this washstand painted blue a while ago but got the bug to paint it white with
black handles…didn’t like it at all so I went with a different color blue.

That’s about all I’ve been up too lately besides watching kids, thanks for stopping by and
visiting my blog!

Your project turned out great, Rondell! Love the color! I really like the chalky paint, too...I have a post up for a project that I just used it for, too!

We are some of those MINUS 40 degree people! Hate it!

Your washstand turned out great, Rondell. It is a bright pop of color in your foyer. I was wondering how those chalk paints from Home Depot worked--Do you like them as much as the other chalk paints?

Have a good day-our kids are back in school today but we have about 4 more inches of snow coming today- ugh- xo Diana

Love the new color blue! It's brighter and so pretty and a great color for that cabinet. I've yet to use chalk paint, maybe one of these days. You did a wonderful job, it looks great!

Dawn said...

What a beautiful shade of blue, and your new owl is darling. What a great find :)

I haven't heard of that brand of chalk paint before. It seems that everyone is making it nowadays! That's good though. Keeps the price competitive. I really like the color you chose for that furniture. That's a wonderful blue.

I love your cabinet painted blue!! I'm wanting to paint a wood trunk that my hubby made for me when we were first married. I'll have to go to our Home Depot to check out their chalk paint. I think Lowes might have some too. Is it easy to use?
hugs,
Cindy
