After reading about Annie Sloan Chalk paint in the bible that is Mollie Makes, I was immediately attracted to the fact that you don't have to sand or prime before you use the paint - ideal for a busy working mum like me!
I then booked myself onto an Introduction to Furniture painting using Annie Sloan Chalk paints at The Bunting Queen, a gorgeous little shop that sells gifts, paint, fabrics and hires out handmade bunting for events and parties with the option to create your own bespoke designs, in the heart of Chester.
I was blown away by the amount of effects one tin of Annie Sloan Chalk paint can provided and then combined with the wax a whole new range of ideas and possibilities appear. Whether it's furniture, metal, walls or floors - this paint can cover it, as well as creating aged effects to achieve period furniture to be proud of.
Even though I run Ministry of Craft, I usually enjoy the challenge of figuring out a new skill by myself, but this time I'm really glad I didn't! This course has set my imagination racing, inspired me and armed with the 'Old white', 'Paris Grey' and a tin of clear wax, I can't wait to get started. If you get the chance book a place for yourself or explore the range of Annie Sloan paints for yourself. I promise you'll be addicted.
