So I decided to do it in my dining room. Wood Icing Gallery, where I sell my colored pencil paintings, also sells wood refinishing products. I decided to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Everything I've heard about it is true, I didn't sand or prime (I did wipe it down, but that just took a minute). I did the first coat in about an hour.
I'm on to the second coat today, then the wax. I'll show you the finished dining room next week.
I also did a house portrait, a lovely home with spring plantings. I enjoy doing these house portraits! If you're interested in having one done of your house or a special place (maybe the church where you were married or the your childhood school), you can order one here:
