This last week I have been transforming furniture and items of my household using chalk paint.
Everybody seems to be talking about chalk paint recently and it actually had a prominent position in the biggest arts and crafts show that took place in Athens, some days ago.
Women seem to be ‘obsessed’ with it !!! I watched a few videos on you tube, and I was amazed to see how determined these ladies were to paint various items of their household, even new furniture in excellent condition!
Anyway, I got infected by this virus, too and felt this urge inside me to change two little tables and an armchair which are inherited pieces by my mother and belonged to my grandmother!
So I took brushes and paints out and the tables were transformed into their much improved selves in two different shades of white (e.g. pergamon white and marble).loooove it!!!!! I Love the stencil and the colour, which I made myself using acrylic colours and chalk paint.
I will now leave you my friends, with my warmest wishes for a relaxed and happy Sunday, and a fruitful week ahead.
My love to all,
They look great Tina and so special as you have kept a piece of your grandmother's life with you. Enjoy them. HxReplyDelete

I have experienced 'chalk paint frenzy' too, a little while ago, so I know what you mean! You did a wonderful job Tina...the tables look amazing...I love the stencil so much and the chair looks so pretty now! xoxReplyDelete
