Dining Room Revival
Posted on January 07 2017
These Holidays we took a day out to revive a dining room area. One of the many incredible things about Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan is that you can not only use it to transform your furniture, but you can use it on walls, floors and even homeware to complete your vision with ease. Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan gives you the freedom of colours and beautiful finishes, if you can visualise it… Chalk Paint will certainly get you there.
Annie Sloan’s new white and black waxes have created even more possiblities when it comes to colours and finishes. We love the the black wax on Aubusson Blue creating a beautiful deep rich blue with beautiful depth.
Utilise your space and existing furniture. Create your bespoke space to suit your home and style with Chalk Paint. When you have the freedom of colour and finishes, you should start to explore what it is you’re really after without being swayed by just what’s available on the market or waiting for that day to replace everything. NZ has a strong DIY culture and once you discover Chalk paint by Annie Sloan as a tool to create with ease, anything and everything becomes possible. Creating your space with Chalk Paint allows you to create a unique space with no limitations other than your imagination. We love the painted wooden floors in this area. Originally an old bach, the wooden floors were tired and worn with marks, cracks in the varnish and dents. Paris Grey chalk paint has lightened and modernised the space whilst the Pure White wash has retained the history of the floors highlighting any cracks, dents and imperfections retaining it’s character, creating interest and depth in the finish. With no sanding or priming, Paris Grey was directly rolled onto the floors and by the time we finished the first coat over the entire area, where we had started was dry ready to go again. Annie Sloan’s floor lacquer is a beautiful hardwearing lacquer designed to be used over Chalk Paint a great way to finish the floors with it being a non yellowing lacquer, matte with a slight sheen.
We hope this project has helped to inspire you for your projects in 2017. We are looking forward to being back in store soon with so many wonderful projects in the pipeline, we are feeling refreshed and charged after the holiday period and can not wait to get started! See you Soon
