Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Sideboard

This Summer I was busy trying to furnish and decorate our Farm house…spending the least possible amount of money. We found a local farmer that builds furniture and had some pieces custom-made. All unfinished and ready for my favourite paint…Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I could not find the right size sideboard for my dining room so I had it made. Two drawers and plenty of room for storage…

I went off to visit my Annie Sloan Stockist to get my paint, Elizabeth from The Melon Patch,

and to ask her for advise…what COLOUR??

Elizabeth suggested I try Country Grey with clear wax.

The colour is perfect for my dining space. I decided to leave the top unpainted and stained it instead.

I didn’t distress the sideboard as the original wood was very light and it didn’t really come through. I did sand it lightly and then decided to save more money by using the leftover hardware from my kitchen remodel.

I decided to paint my table and chairs in the same colour. Here is a sneak peek…

Looking forward to posting the Dining Room photos very soon.

Thanks for taking the time to come by,
