Good Morning everyone !!!
A long time ago - before any of you knew me lol - I came across this dresser
I was very very new to Annie Sloan Chalk Paints at the time and so I bought one of her books to " teach "
myself how to use her paints and after seeing this dresser she had painted
I decided to give it a " go "
Those flowers are created by ripping a piece of cardboard down the middle and drawing painted lines against the rough edge - so easy and such a lovely look that I had to try it myself.
I came across this post last night and decided to repost it ( this was long before anyone had ever visited my blog - back when I had only one follower - myself ! ) so my photos are even crappier than they are today LOL
It never sold and I eventually changed it but this was probably the dresser that started my love of chalk paint
I was thinking last night about how much she revolutionalized painting furniture.....................
How one woman and her love of creating almost started a " movement "
Of course there were always people that painted furniture - but she made it so much easier - and quicker -
Today there are all kinds of paints on the market - tons of them actually - that do the same thing - but really it all started with one lady.
So I thought I'd take a moment to give credit where credit is due
Thanks Annie - for sharing yourself with the world - your dream became the dream of many (of which I am one of )
Thank you very very much
Have a wonderful day everyone!
